Massachusetts State Law requires that a copy of the physical exam conducted at age 9 (forth grade) is part of your child’s school health record. If your child has already had their 9 year old check up, or if it is coming up over the spring/summer months, please send me a copy of this physical.
You physician has comprehensive knowledge of your child’s health status. He/She will have the opportunity to thoroughly examine your child, perform any necessary tests and bring your child’s immunizations up to date.
You do not need a special form from school, your pediatrician’s own form is fine. You can drop that off any time or the Doctor’s office fax directly to me at 781-316-3748.
