Physical exams are valid for one calendar year.   

If you choose to have a physical by your primary care physician, a copy of the exam must be given to the school nurse.  The link below is NYS mandated physical form to be filled out by your student's physician.

NYS Physical Form


The student's doctor must fill out the Medication Form (posted below) and the student's parent must fill out their portion. The doctor will need to determine if the medication is to be administered by the school nurse or if the student is able to carry and self administer the medication. It can be faxed to the School Nurse . All medicine must be transported to school by an adult in an original container if the doctor does not want them to self carry the medication.  A new order must be sent for each school year.

Screenings (Important)

Throughout the school year students will be screened  for Scoliosis.  Information regarding Scoliosis is posted below.  Nurses will also be screening student's vision and hearing.  Referral letters are only sent home if your student requires further evaluation.   If you do not want the screening done by the school nurse and you would prefer to have it done by you own doctor, please contact the school in writing to request the screening not be done.  Please sign and date the request, and make sure to include your child's name.  The request must be received by the October 1, 2019  because screenings will begin after that date.
