Mandatory Physicals

NYS Dept. of Education requires physicals for NEW students, and ALL students entering Pre-K or K, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th and 11th grades. A current physical is also required for all working paper applications, and may be required for students in CSE or CPSE. 

In addition, we are required to utilize the NYS Physical Form for ALL physicals. Please call Mrs. Habermehl at 337-0166, ext. 2101 for further information or to answer your questions.

Health Screenings

Various health screenings are required as indicated by the chart below. These screenings will be done by the school nurses during the school year.

If you would like to opt out of these screenings for your child, please notify Mrs. Senus at the High School or Mrs. Habermehl at the Elementary School in writing by September 30 of each school year. 

Immunization Requirements for 6th Grade Entrance 

In order to protect our children from vaccine-preventable diseases, the NYS Public Health Law requires that all students who enroll in 6th grade must provide documentation of receiving an immunization containing tetanus toxoids, diphtheria, and accelular pertussis (Tdap).

Please contact Mrs. Habermehl, Elementary School Nurse, at 337-0166, ext. 2101 if you have any questions.

Medications in School 

Just a reminder: If your child will need medications during school hours, the appropriate forms must be completed and on file in the school health office by the beginning of the school year.  If you have not received these forms, please call the school nurse at 337-0166, ext. 2101 to request a copy. 


Parents of 5th Graders:  In order to protect our children from vaccine preventable diseases, New York State Public Health Law Section 2164 was amended in 2004.  The law requires that all students born on or after January 1, 1994, and who enroll in the 6th grade in any public, private or parochial school must provide documentation of being immunized against varicella (chicken pox). 

Parents of 7th Graders:  Your child will NOT be able to enter 7th Grade without written proof of having received the Hepatitis B Vaccine, which is a series of 3 vaccines.  Please contact your health care provider TODAY and set up an appointment if your child has not already been vaccinated.
