Physicals for Re-Enrollment and EKG's Offered on Campus May 9 & 11
To begin the re-enrollment process for the 2016-2017 school year, Floyd Wellness and Sports Medicine is offering the required Darlington Annual Physical Exam on campus at the AJ Huffman Center to all current rising 9th through 12th grade students on May 9th (last name A-L) and May 11th (last name M-Z) from 6:00 to 7:30 pm. Resident students should come after dinner.
For students in a designated Darlington athletic program, the cost of the physical is free. For students not involved in an athletic program there is a low fee of $25 (resident student's fee will be billed to their parent account). Day Students need to bring a check made payable to Darlington School.
The 2016-2017 Medical Report form is online this year! Once online look for the Enrollment link or go directly to www.darlingtonschool.org/enrollment.
PARENTS must complete this online portion before the student will be given a physical.
In addition to physicals, we are offering EKG Screenings for a separate charge of $40. All EKG's must be paid by all students (Day and Resident) at the time of service by cash or check made payable to Floyd Medical Center. If you would like for your student to receive an EKG you must do two things: 1. fill out the EKG form (attached to this announcement) and 2. call Darlington's Health Center (706) 236-0428 to make an appointment for the EKG. The screening will be scheduled on the same night as the physicals.
