Mandated Physicals Examinations: Required on all tenth grade students along with updated immunizations in order to be in compliance with Connecticut State law. The State of Connecticut HAR form is required prior to the first day of 11th grade. Page 1 is completed and signed by the parent and Page 2 is completed (all asterisked areas and screenings) by a legally qualified practitioner of medicine. Sports physicals will not be accepted in lieu of the mandated form (HAR). Incomplete or unsigned forms will be returned for completion.
Mandated Sports Examinations: Required YEARLY for all students participating in sports. The HAR can also be used as a sports physical form with Page 2 completed by a legally qualified practitioner of medicine. Sports physicals are due to the school nurse for review 2 weeks (10 business days) prior to the first day of tryouts and/or practice. The date of the physical cannot be older than 13 months from the first day of practice and/or tryouts and must be updated if it expires during the season. Parents must complete the sports sign-up on Family ID and the nurse will forward all approved physicals to each coach prior to a student being placed on a roster.
Mandatory Health Screenings: Revisions to the Oxford Board of Education policy in July 2015 require the following screenings:
Postural (Scoliosis): Grade 9 male students ONLY. Parents will have the option to have their child excluded, in writing.
Vision and hearing in required in grades pre-K, K, 1, 3, 4 and 5 only.
Medication Administration: Connecticut State law requires a physician's written order and parent/guardian written permission for the administration of ALL medications, including over the counter medications to students. Students may not self-carry any medications without prior written consent from the nurse and your physician. Please contact the Health Office to discuss your child's needs.
Health Forms: All necessary forms are available on the Oxford High School website or in the Health Office.
