KY Requirements for School Entry
The state of Kentucky requires that all students complete the following exams upon school entrance.

  1. Kentucky Immunization Law (KRS 158.035) requires a valid up-to-date Kentucky Immunization Certificate prior to entering school.  By law we can only accept Kentucky Immunization Certificates.
    1. All students must have the 2-dose series of Hepatitis A (age: 12 months through 18 years)
    2. If your child is entering the sixth grade, they are required to have a tetanus booster (Tdap) and a Meningococcal vaccine.
    3. If your child is 16 years of age a booster dose of Meningococcal vaccine is required.
  2. Kentucky Law requires each student to have a medical examination* within one year prior to initial entry and before entering the sixth grade.
    *The KHSAA sports physical is NOT the same as the Kentucky Preventative Health Care Exam form (if your child plays a sport, they will need BOTH forms).
  3. Kentucky Law requires that all children ages 3, 4, 5, or 6 years enrolled in public school must have an eye exam by an optometrist or ophthalmologist. 
  4. Kentucky Law requires that all children ages 5 and 6 enrolled in a public school must have a dental exam prior to entering kindergarten.

In order to be compliant, please obtain and submit the required form/s prior to school start.  Failure to do so may result in your child’s exclusion from school until the necessary documentation has been received.
