A physical examination signed by the pediatrician is required at the time of entrance. This examination should be conducted by your child’s primary care provider. The exam may be reported on the Massachusetts School Health Record, or on the primary care provider’s form and returned to the school. Required immunizations should also be included on the health record. A physical examination done within the past year prior to entrance is acceptable, the exam must include Tuberculosis risk assessment. A vision screening is also recommended. If the student is coming from outside the United States, a Tuberculosis (TB) test may also be required before admission. Please refer to the enclosed information regarding TB.
The physical for Kindergarten entry requires a lead screening including the date and results of the blood test; and vision screening including stereopsis results.
Massachusetts General Law c.76, §§ 15 and 15C, requires school children be immunized against hepatitis B, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (DTP), polio, haemophilus influenzae type B (Hib), measles, mumps, rubella (German measles) (MMR), and varicella (chicken pox).
Massachusetts School Immunization Requirements*
**VARICELLA (Chicken Pox) Disease – verified by your doctor or nurse practitioner in writing.
LEAD SCREENING - Lead Screening is not an immunization; however, screening date and result are required to enter kindergarten.
TUBERCULOSIS - Lexington Public Schools follow the Massachusetts Department of Public Health’s recommendations for tuberculosis (TB) screening in children:
All students should have a TB risk assessment by their primary care provider at the time of scheduled physicals and upon entry to school.
If your child has a risk factor for TB, please submit a TB test to the school nurse.
Risk factors are:
Birth, travel to, and/or resided in high-risk world regions**
Exposure to an individual with diagnosed or suspected TB disease
Household contact to individual with positive TB test
Parent and/or guardian or household member from a high-risk world region
History of immunosuppressive disease or medications that might cause immunosuppression
**High risk world regions are Africa, Asia (except Japan), Pacific Islands, Middle East, Eastern Europe, Mexico, Central or South America, and the Caribbean.
If the TB test is positive, then a negative chest X-ray report is required. BCG vaccine cannot be used in place of a TB screening test because its protection rate is unreliable and tuberculosis may occur after vaccination.
In situations when one or more cases of a vaccine-preventable or any other communicable disease are present in a school, all susceptible, including those with medical or religious exemptions, are subject to exclusion as described in the Reportable Diseases and Isolation and Quarantine Requirements (105 CMR 300.000).
