Health Forms Required for K and 6th Grades

Kindergarten and 6th grade Middle School students are required to have health documentation for school entry. If you have a child entering one of these grades for the upcoming school year, following is the list of documents that you will need.

 

For students entering Kindergarten you will need the following:

  1. A valid, current Ky Immunization certificate (check the expiration date, students entering Kindergarten must have received immunizations after their 4th birthday)
  2. A school entry physical (completed on or after August 6, 2013)
  3. A vision exam by a licensed optometrist or ophthalmologist (completed on or after August 6, 2013)
  4. A dental exam / screening (completed on or after your child's 5th birthday)
  5. A copy of your child's state issued birth certificate (the hospital record does not meet this requirement)

 

For students entering 6th grade you will need the following:

  1. A valid, current Ky immunization certificate that includes required 11 year old vaccines (TDap booster, Meningococcal vaccine and a second Varicella vaccine if not already received)
  2. A 6th grade physical (A sport's physical does NOT replace this physical)
  3. A separate sports physical if your child will be involved in any school sponsored sport (A 6th grade entry physical does NOT replace this physical)

**Please note that all medical providers will have the appropriate state forms for the required paperwork as noted above. You will need to let them know what grade your child is entering so that they use the correct form**
