From the Nurse

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Nebraska State Law directs each school to require evidence of a physical examination by a qualified physician within six (6) months prior to the entrance of a student into seventh (7th) grade.  Please submit a hard copy or an electronic copy of the physical form and updated immunizations from your doctor’s office, before or on the first day of school.  

Every student will need to have a booster immunization containing diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and acellular pertussis(Tdap).  This immunization is a state requirement and needs to be completed in order to start school in the fall.  

If there are medical or religious reasons for your son/daughter not to receive immunizations, there is a waiverform available upon request.

If your son/daughter is considering participating in any middle school sport, the physical exam must be done after May 1st.  Students may not participate in any sport practice or game until the physical form is completed and returned to school.  

Please go to acms.gpsne.organd click on Activities at the top, then select Sports Physical. The firs page is a Sports Form and the second page is the Physical Evaluation Form.  A form generated from your physicians is also accepted. 

Please call or email with any questions.  You may also fax the physical exam and evidence of immunizations to Aspen Creek Middle School, Attn: School Nurse at (402) 408-2537

Sincerely,

Lori Kanne RN, BSN, CPN
