Final Forms can be accessed through the main LMS webpage, where directions on how to access the site, along with a "Parent Playbook" about the program are included.

They are good for a period of 2 years. Doctor's physicals may be obtained through a family doctor, or families may choose (this year) to take advantage of a PTN-sponsored physical by local doctors for a $25 donation (donation money will be given back to the school).
