Health Services Nurse
Carolann DeLuca-Killinger, BSN, RN
A doctor’s note is required when your child is unable to participate in physical education classes. The note should include a diagnosis (reason for the excuse), and length of time the student will be out of gym. If the student had a significant injury and has been incapacitated for a lengthy period of time, then they will need clearance by their doctor for return to gym or sports. Accommodations will be made for student's activities on campus based on physician guidelines. This is extremely important for their vocational classes.
PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANY MEDICATION TO SCHOOL WITH YOUR CHILD
New Student Requirements
MA General Law, Chapter 71, section 57 requires physical exams and immunizations for all students upon entry into school and at certain intervals thereafter. Physical exams are required upon enrollment, and grade 10. Physical forms can be faxed, mailed or dropped off to the school. This form must be signed and dated by the child’s physician, not printed from the health portal. Forms can not be emailed due to privacy laws.
MIAA requires an updated physical form on file with the nurse to be eligible to participate in school sports. In order to participate in sports, the student must have an updated physical on file in the nurse's office. If you know your child is going to participate in sports while at NCAHS please plan in advance, and make an early appointment with your physician's office. Physical forms can be faxed, mailed or dropped off to the school. Forms can not be emailed due to privacy laws.
