The State of New York requires that physical health of each students' development be monitored in grades Kindergarten, 1, 3, 5,7, 9, 11. This is a change from previous requirements. Your family physician is best informed about your child's health. You are encouraged to have your family physician perform this examination. If you do not have a family physician or prefer the examination be done in school, we will arrange to have your child examined by our school physician.
The nurse has a "Physical Exam Preference" form for you to fill out. This form should be completed and returned to the school nurse by September 15. If you elect to have the physical examination done by your child's physician, please have the examination completed and return the student physical/health appraisal form by November 1.
If you have any questions, please contact our nurses, Mrs. Burns and Mrs. McCormack on ext. 514.
SPORTS PHYSICALS: Sports physicals will be performed by the school physician prior to the sport season.
