Physical Exam Requirements

Students eight years old and younger
Every student age 8 or under entering a Kansas public or private school for the first time must turn in a physical exam form to the school. If a physical exam has not been completed at the time of enrollment, a “Physical Exam Exemption Form” must be signed and turned in to the school. The Exemption Form gives the student 90 days from the date of the enrollment to have the exam completed and the form returned to school.

A physical exam completed 1 year prior to the enrollment in a Kansas school may be used to fulfill this requirement. Please check with the school nurse to see if a previous exam fulfills the Kansas requirement.

Forms from other schools/states are accepted.
