Pueblo School Physical Requirements
Colorado schools require mandated vaccinations and physicals prior to starting the school year. What you might not know is that you could face long wait times and even shortages of certain vaccines if you wait until the last few weeks before school. Luckily School Districts 60 and 70 have their physical examination forms and immunization requirements posted on their respective websites so you can prepare and get appointments made now.
You can find the CHSAA Sports Physical Form at the link. Make sure to print and bring it with you for your child’s physical exam.

Additionally, students participating in athletics or other extra-curricular activities generally have to get a physical examination before school starts. For some sports and extra-curricular activities such as football, volleyball, soccer, cheerleading and band – practice begins weeks before the first day of school and will require physicals even earlier. A proper school physical should include both a medical history and a physical examination to ensure early detection of any health-related issues.
