Effective 7/1/2018, for the school year 2018-2019, the New York State Education Law has been amended for health exams and screening.
Health examinations (physicals exams) will now be mandated for all students who are in the 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th and 11th grades and new entrants including Pre-K or K. Health services will be sending out packets in May/June 2018 for your child’s primary care provider (doctor office) to fill out and have them returned to your student’s school nurse in September.
Reminder, if your child is in 7th-12th grade and is interested in an interscholastic sport, he/she will need an additional sport physical exam provided by our District Nurse Practitioner in order to participate. Please contact your child’s school nurse for forms and information.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Nurse Practitioner’s office at 286-0788.
