Notice on physical exam requirement
The Hawaii State Department of Education and Health are collaborating on ways to protect and ensure the health of our keiki. We know adolescence is a time of tremendous physical, emotional, and social change, and a physical exam can help to prevent health issues from developing.
To help Prepare your child for Seventh Grade State law requires all public school students to complete a physical exam, also called a well child visit, within 12 months before starting seventh grade. It is important to plan ahead and schedule an appointment for your child before the seventh grade school year begins.
All students at Keaau Middle School in the 6th grade have been sent home a Notification letter and Form 14 (Student Health Record). Please submit the completed Form 14 (Student Health Record) to your child's school when he or she registers for the seventh grade.
If you have any questions please call Keaau Middle School Health Room (808)313-4816. Click here for more
