Freshman Physical Information:

New Jersey State law requires that each student must be examined at their medical home (family doctor) upon entry into a school district. Therefore, Hunterdon Central requires a physical examination for all Grade 9 students. Please note that a sports physical will fulfill the requirement for a freshman physical.

Physical forms may be downloaded and printed for our website, here: Health Forms The Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation Form must be used for all freshman physicals.

Forms can also be picked up in Health Offices or can be mailed to student homes, upon request. Freshman Physical Forms must be turned in or mailed to the Freshman Health Office by September 29, 2023. If you have any questions about Freshman Physicals, please call the 9/10 Health Office: 908-284-7304.

All students who require medication during the school day, either prescription or non-prescription, must have a physician's order on file in the appropriate Health Office. Care plans and medication authorization forms can be found on the Health Forms webpage. Please have these completed by your child's physician and return them to the appropriate Health Office.

Failure to comply will delay your child's participation in sports, field trips, and appropriate nursing care. Please note that physician orders for medication must be renewed for each new school year.
