Notes from the Nurse’s Office

  • Physicals:  New York State Education Law requires a Health Appraisal (Physical Exam) to be provided for each new entrant, as well as for all students in grades Pre-K or K, 2, 4, 7, and 10.  It is best to have this exam done by your private pediatrician and then give your school nurse a copy of the exam.  It can also be done at school by the school healthcare practitioner with your written permission.

    Immunizations:  Immunizations are important to your child’s health. Please make sure your children are up-to-date with their immunizations and that you give the school nurse a copy of their immunization record each time they receive vaccines.

    Forms:  Please click on the links to the right for any forms you may need.

    Sports:  The registration process, including medical clearance, for school sports will now be done completely online through Family ID (see the link on the left).  The following information will be needed to complete the process. 

    1. Health Appraisal (Physical Exam).  The physical must have been performed within one year from the month that the sport starts.  For example, a physical that was performed in August of 2015 is valid for sports that are beginning in August 2016.  This can be done with your private healthcare practitioner or by the school healthcare practitioner.  If it is done privately, a copy must be uploaded during the registration process or submitted directly to the school nurse.  If you would like the exam done at school, you must sign the consent form during the registration process or print it from the link on the right and submit it directly to the school nurse.   

    2. Health History.  This will be completed when you register your child for sports through the Family ID website.  It will need to be updated prior to the start of every season in which they plan on playing.
