Florida Physical Examinations for entry to school

Students in grades kindergarten through 12th grade who are making their initial entry into a Florida school must present a record of a physical examination completed within the past 12 months. The exam record should be taken to the child’s school upon enrollment.

Although a specific form is not required, it is recommended that Florida’s standardized School Entry Exam form (DH 3040) be used to document completion of a physical examination. It must be completed by a health care provider such as a Chiropractic Physician Chapter 460, Chiropractic Medicine, licensed to perform physical examinations.

For students transferring to a Florida school, a comparable form from another state would be acceptable, if completed within 1 year. Contact Dr. Dean for more information on the school physical examination or to schedule an appointment.
