Medication Administration (as mandated by New York State Education Law):
New York State Education Law requires students to have a physical examination upon entry to a new school and grades: Kindergarten, 2, 4, 7, and 10. Education law now requires school officials to request a dental certificate along with required grade level physicals. Our school nurses will notify parents of these grade level requirements in writing along with the appropriate forms and instructions.
Members of the school medical board will conduct pre-scheduled school-based exams throughout the school year. Upon request, the school nurse will provide information regarding dental services in the area.
Health History Form - Required for athletic participation
The 2013-2014 sports season includes interscholastic sports and marching band. Annual physicals are required by law to participate in these activities and remain valid for 12 consecutive months. The school nurse will contact interested students prior to each sport season regarding qualification requirements. The nurse may not qualify the athlete to return to sports after an accident/injury. This written release must originate with your health care provider.
Immunization requirements-Section 2164 NYS Public Health Law
Please keep us posted with any changes in your contact address and phone numbers. The information requested on the emergency cards is used to maintain an accurate database in the event we need to contact a parent/guardian for unplanned illness and/ or accident during school hours. We also use this database in the case of a general community/ school emergency to contact all parents/guardians with important information from the district superintendant.
