School Nurse: Mrs. Veronica McFeely
Telephone #: 516-938-3846
Mrs. McFeely recently had shoulder surgery. She is recovering beautifully at home, but will not return to Holy Family School for a few months. In her absence, Mrs. Altman will be covering as our school nurse.
Please keep Mrs. McFeely in your prayers as she continues to heal and get stronger, so she can return to Holy Family as soon as possible!
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THE BEGINNING OF THE SCHOOL YEAR
Physical exams are mandated by New York State law for children entering KINDERGARTEN, SECOND, FOURTH and SEVENTH grades and for all new entrants to Holy Family School. Additionally, a physical exam is required for participation in after school sports programs. NYS law states that the physical must be done within a year of the first day of school. This means that the exam you submit for the 2016/2017 school year must be dated on or after September 2015. Please make sure forms are completely filled out. Before you leave your physician’s office check to see that the form is signed, dated and stamped. Medical forms may be downloaded from the school web site. Computerized forms from your physician’s office are also acceptable.
Please send completed physical forms in with your child on the first,second or third day of school. If you have scheduled a physical exam after the first day of school please send a note to me indicating when it will be done.
All children MUST have required immunizations BEFORE school begins in September. Please review the NYS requirement sheets.
Feel free to call me if you have any questions.
Mrs. McFeely, RN
