Health Records & Services Policy
Health records are maintained for each child at the school site per PA Charter School Law.

Wellness Policy
As students enrolled in the Cyber School participate in their instruction from a home environment, not a traditional school, the expectation is that the student and his or her parent, guardian, or family member(s) will provide appropriate interventions at home and with appropriate care providers to ensure a safe, secure, and healthy learning environment.

Physical Examinations
Pennsylvania requires that students upon entry, 6th, and 11th grade to be given a "comprehensive appraisal" of their health. The school will accept a a copy of a physical exam form from the student's physician if completed within one year prior to enrollment.
You can also use the form listed here. Bring it your child's physician and return it to the school.
