Re: 2018-2019 NYS Required Health Examinations

As of July 1, 2018 New York State law requires a health examination for all students entering the school district for the first time and when entering Pre-K or K, 1st, 3rd, 5th , 7 th, 9th , and 11th grade. The examination must be completed by a New York State licensed physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner and on the approved NYSED Student Health Examination Form for School.

If your new student, 5th, 7th, 9th or 11th grader is still in need of a physical by November 15th and we have not received notification and documentation about an upcoming appointment, a health examination will be given by a licensed provider on site.
