Physical Exam

California’s Child Health and Disability Prevention (CHDP) program requires every child to have a physical examination before entering school in kindergarten. Please submit a copy of your child's medical checkup to the school when you register for kindergarten or as soon as it is completed during kindergarten.

You are encouraged to obtain this exam by kindergarten entry to make sure your child is healthy and ready to learn. Transitional Kindergarten students who submit a physical exam will fulfill this requirement for kindergarten.

 

If a physical exam is against your personal beliefs, you must sign a CHDP waiver form at the school. Students who have not met this requirement by the appropriate date may be excluded from school attendance for up to five days.

The OHA must be completed and returned to the school by May 31 of that first school year.  Assessments done 12 months prior to school entry also meet this requirement. Obtain the form from the school or your dental health provider to complete. Transitional kindergarten students who submit an oral health assessment will complete this requirement.

Parents or guardians may sign a waiver of this requirement, which is found on the OHA form available at the school. There is no penalty or exclusion if this requirement is not met.
