The State of New Jersey recommends that your child have a yearly well child examination with their physician. Well child exams are important tools to insure that your child is growing and developing well. They are a great time to ask your physician any questions you may have regarding your child. Well child examinations at ages 4-6, 11, and 16 are required for immunizations. Please be sure to provide our school nurse with proof of any immunizations provided to your child and keep a copy for your own records. You can obtain a copy of our Report of Physical Examination, form by clicking the link below or contacting our school nurse.
According to N.J.A.C 6A:16-2.2, all students must be screened for scoliosis biennially (every 2 years) between the ages of 10 and 18. Students will be screened during their 5th grade year at Parkview. Parents/Guardians of 5th grade students will receive a letter from the school nurse indicating the timeframe for screening as well as information regarding scoliosis. If you wish to exempt your child from this screening process, you must submit a written request.
