Nebraska law requires children upon entry into Kindergarten, 7th grade, or transferring from an out-of-state school, to have a physical examination within 6 months prior to school entrance.
Nebraska law requires children entering Kindergarten, 7th grade, or transferring from an out-of-state school to provide proof of vision evaluation within 6 months prior to school entrance. This evaluation is to include testing for ambylopia, strabismus, internal and external eye health, and visual acuity.
This basically means:
1. Out of state transfer students, Kindergarteners, and 7th graders must get a physical and vision exam prior to the start of school.
2. Regarding the vision exam: The elements of this eye exam can be done by any health care provider (including MDs, ODs, PAs, APRNs) and DOES NOT require an eye specialist. Of course an exam by an eye specialist is also acceptable, but it is not mandatory to see one to meet this requirement.
All students in 8-12th grade and plan to participate in Clarkson Public School activities will be required to turn in an athletic physical form proir to beginning the sports season.
