4th Grade Physical Documentation

Dear Parents of 4th Graders,

Massachusetts General Law, c.71, s.57, requires all school children to have a physical examination on file within one year prior to entrance to school or within 30 days after school entry and at intervals of either three or four years thereafter.  

In order to comply with this law at the elementary level, we require that you provide a copy of the physician-completed physical examination performed prior to your child’s kindergarten year and during his or her 4th grade year.

Please provide the school with a copy of your child’s most recent physical exam.  You can send a copy in with your child or the pediatrician can fax it directly to 978-468-0450.

Thank you for your assistance,

Lisa Druskat, R.N. B.S.N.

ATTENTION 4TH AND 5TH GRADE PARENTS


 Each year, as part of our Health Program, we present information on puberty for our 4th and 5th grade students.  We address the growth and development process, nutrition, personal hygiene, physical and emotional changes during puberty and the increased responsibilities that accompany these important changes.

On Monday, March 21st from 6:30 – 7:30pm there will be an information meeting for parents at the Buker School Multi-purpose Room, where you will have the opportunity to view the videos we use and ask questions.  I encourage you to join us to learn more about how we present this information to your children.  Permission slips have been sent home and it is necessary for these forms to be returned in order for the students to attend this program.  Parents who do not want their children to participate must indicate that on the form.


If you would like further information, please call Kathleen Hughes at 978-626-0873.
