IMPORTANT INFORMATION

We have been informed of changes made regarding the New York State requirement for health examinations for school attendance.

Beginning with the 2018-2019 school year students who will be in the listed grades will be required to have a physical exam:

  • Pre-K or Kindergarten
  • First Grade
  • Third Grade
  • Fifth Grade
  • Seventh Grade
  • Also, if participating in middle school sports, an exam is required.

Physical must be done within a year of the first day of school. Since school begins on September 5, 2018 a physical done after September 2017 is acceptable for 2018-19 school year.

Attached is the new NYS Health Examination Form. Computerized forms from your physician will be accepted next year but not in the 2019-2020 school year.

Immunization requirements have not changed. Kindergarten students are still required to have two MMR’s and two Varicella’s as well as a polio vaccine given after the age of four. Sixth grade students need a Tdap Vaccine and two Varicella’s and Seventh grade students need a Meningococcal vaccine. All vaccines need to be given before school begins on September 5, 2018. Proper documentation is required. All forms must be legible, signed and stamped by the doctor.

Feel free to call the health office if you have any questions.
