First Grade Health Examination Requirement

California law (HS 124040, 124045, 124085) and district regulation (AR 5141.3) require that parents of each child enrolling in first grade provide verification signed by a physician, that the child received a physical examination between 18 months before to 90 days after first grade entry. If a child does not receive this exam, the parent must provide the district with a waiver stating reasons the child did not receive a physical, or the child may be sent home if the parent fails to provide this verification. 

Examinations may be available at no cost through the Child Health and Disability Prevention (CHDP) Program. For more information, contact the San Luis Obispo County Health Agency: 2191 Johnson Avenue, San Luis Obispo, 781-5527.

You can download the CHDP exam form here: Report of Health Examination Form. It is also available through the local CHDP program, schools, and provider offices.

FAQs about First Grade Health Examination Requirements and Procedures for provider and school personnel are found in the  CDPH School Handbook.
