A physical exam, which includes a vision screening, and immunization history are required for entrance to kindergarten. Your child can be excluded from school until we have received documentation from your physician. Please submit the Current Physical Exam Form on Kindergarten Walk-in Registration day - March 3, 2017.
Immunization Record -The law requires that the following immunizations and/or screenings be complete before entering kindergarten.

Vision Screening - Massachusetts law states that upon entering kindergarten or within 30 days of the start of school, the parent or guardian of each child shall present certification that the child has passed a vision screening within the past 12 months. In years past, vision screening was offered at the school during the spring prior to the kindergarten year. It is now required that a primary care provider perform the screening.
