 Physical Examinations: A physical exam is required for all students entering Galloway Township Public Schools. The form, "Universal Health Record" must be submitted within 30 days of enrollment. Please note that any physical exam that was performed by a health care provider within 365 days prior to your child's first day of school will be acceptable.

The New Jersey Department of Education recommends that students obtain a complete physical examination at least once during each developmental stage: early childhood (Preschool-Grade 3), pre-adolescent (Grades 4-6), and adolescent (Grades 7-12).

 Help Us Reduce Your Child's Exposure to Illness: Promoting a healthy school environment will benefit all students. Following the guidelines listed within the "Attendance & When to Keep Your Child Home" document will aid in minimizing the spread of illness in the school setting. This, in turn, will lead to fewer days your child will miss from school due to contact with students who have come to school sick. It will also result in less time away from work for parents/guardians. If you have any questions about when to keep your child home, please contact your school nurse.
