From the Merion Nurses
Sixth grade physicals
This is a reminder to fifth grade families that your student will be required to have a copy of their physical in sixth grade. It can be dated anywhere between September 2017 and June 2019. Since there are rules for each insurance company and pediatrician's office, we try to remind you in advance so as to avoid any extra charges. Once the physical exam is completed, the form can be dropped off at the Merion nurse's office or directly sent to your child's middle school (Bala Cynwyd for most of the Merion population).
Kindergarten and Third Grade Dental Exams
All students who started K in the fall, third graders, and new students who started grade 1 are required by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to submit a dental exam report to school. It can be dated anywhere between September 2017 and June 2019.
