• Dear Parent/Guardian:
    The Pennsylvania school code mandates medical examinations for students in grades K, 6 and 11 because these grades represent important periods of growth and development in a student’s life.  The major objective of these examinations is to ensure that the student is in a general state of good health.
    This requirement may be met in two ways, a physical done by the student’s private physician or by the school doctor.  If a private physician is preferred, please have your physician compete and return the Private Physician Report of a Physical Examination located here: https://www.uscsd.k12.pa.us//site/Default.aspx?PageID=127.  Those students who do not return a private physician form will be scheduled to see the school physician in the spring with parental permission.  If you have difficulty opening the document please contact your school nurse or visit the school secretary for a blank form.
    Thank you for your time and cooperation,
    The Upper St. Clair School Nurses
