Probably not. Check the date of the exam and form. It needs to be on the “Report of Health Examination For School Entry” form. If it was given within 18 months prior to the September 1 admission to 1st grade it won’t have to be repeated. If the date is prior to the 18 month cut off, yes your child will need another physical exam.
