The Massachusetts Department of Public Health regulations requires a physical examination, including evidence of up-to-date immunizations, upon entering school and every three years thereafter. This good health practice is recommended for the prevention and early detection of health problems as well as for protection for all children in the public school system. Please also be aware that if your son or daughter plans to participate in a school sport, the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association also requires a new physical exam every 13 months. We ask that you forward these records to the attention of the school nurse at Wayland High School as soon as possible.
Required for entry into Grade 10: regulations require the following information to be forwarded to the school prior to the start of school.
- Copy of physical exam completed within twelve months of entering grade.
Required for Transfers: regulations require immunization records to be forwarded prior to transferring into a new school system.
- Copy of a physical exam completed within one (1) year of transfer into the Wayland school system. A copy of this exam must be received within two months of your child's transfer.
- Complete immunization record.
Please be advised that in compliance with Massachusetts State Law, the Wayland School Department reserves the right to exclude a child from school until such time that the document is received. Should your child be exempt from these requirements due to religious or medical reasons, please document as such and forward to the school at 264 Old Connecticut Path, Wayland, MA 01778.
