The District would like to thank you for your continued support in the health offices. As you and your child plan for the upcoming school year, please keep the following in mind:


A physical exam should be performed by your child’s NYS licensed Health Care Provider. It is required for all students entering the school district for the first time and students in Pre-Kindergarten or Kindergarten, Grades 1, 3,5, 7, 9, and 11. A copy must be given to the school. If your child has an appointment for a physical exam after this date, please notify the Health Office.

Immunization Requirements

  • NY State law requires all students to be up to date on their immunizations in order to attend school. Please contact your child’s doctor to ensure your child has the required vaccinations. See the Vaccination Requirements on the school’s website.
  • Students entering 6th grade must receive a (Tdap) vaccine by their 11th birthday.
  • Students entering 7th grade must receive their first Meningococcal conjugate vaccine.
  • Students entering 12th grade must receive their second Meningococcal conjugate vaccine.

***If your child is not up to date on their required vaccines per NYS guidelines, THEY WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO ATTEND SCHOOL UNTIL THE REQUIRED IMMUNIZATIONS ARE OBTAINED. This is an NYS requirement.***


All students entering UPK, K, Grades 1,3,5,7, and 11 will have their hearing and vision checked at school, If not checked by their healthcare provider at their routine health appraisal. Girls in grades 5 & 7 and boys in grade 9 will be checked for scoliosis at school. You will be alerted if there are any abnormal results. If you would rather have this screening done by your student’s healthcare provider, please let your child’s health office know. A copy of their results must be provided to the health office.


If your child is required to take any medications during school hours (whether a daily or an “as needed” medication this includes all prescription and over-the-counter medications), we will need a written order from the doctor, also signed by you, the parent/guardian. If your child is able to self-carry/self-administer a medication and that medication is for treating a potential life-threatening condition (diabetes, asthma, severe allergy, or seizures), we will need a signed order from the doctor that indicates they may self-carry the medication. Elementary students are NOT allowed to self-carry/self-administer medications.

All medication must be delivered to the nurse's office by a parent/guardian. Students are not permitted to have ANY medication in their possession (unless they have been given written medical approval). This includes prescription and “over-the-counter” medications (such as Advil and Tylenol).

If your child has Asthma, Anaphylaxis due to a Bee Sting or Food Allergy, Seizures, Latex Allergy, Hypoglycemia, Hyperglycemia, or any other life-threatening emergencies, they require an Emergency Care Plan (ECP). Your child’s doctor will be able to provide the ECP, there are also example ECP forms on the school website. It will be shared with trained lay staff, including bus drivers and monitors, who supervise your child when a nurse may not be immediately available. You and your child’s doctor must both sign and return the final version to the nurse’s office.. All ECP’s need to be renewed yearly.

Middle/High School Sports

Fall Sports are slated to begin on the following dates: August 19th (Varsity Football), August 21st (all other JV/Varsity Sports), August 24th (Modified Football), and August 28th (all other Modified Sports).
