    The Nurse’s Office is concerned with the overall health and  well-being of the student and how his/her health impacts the educational  process. EACH YEAR please complete and submit the form called “Confidential  Health Concerns”(Form #109). It is important for the parent or guardian to keep  the nurse informed of any health concerns. All information will be treated with  sensitivity and confidentiality. For matters of an urgent nature that need  immediate nursing attention please contact the nurse via telephone rather than  by email.
     
    New York State law requires ALL 10th grade students and new entrants to have a physical examination on file which shall not be more than twelve months prior to the commencement of the school year in which the examination is requested. The health certificate (102 Physical Exam/ A Form) shall be submitted within thirty days after the student’s entrance. Additionally, each student is requested to furnish a dental certificate (Form #105).     
              
    As per New York State Regulations, mandated screenings of scoliosis, vision and hearing will be done by the nurse at the appropriate time unless a current notation from the physician is on file. Scoliosis is required to be done at the 9th grade level in high school.  Hearing and vision is done at time of entry to the district and for all 10th grade students.  Parents/guardians will be notified in writing of any deficits or concerns that are noted during the screenings.
    • A  medical note is to be submitted to the Nurse’s Office for any  illness, injury or medical condition that affects the student’s ability to  attend school or safely participate in physical education or sports.  A medical current note is necessary to  reinstate the student to full activity.
    • Accidents and injuries on the school grounds are reported to the teacher/staff member in charge of the activity and to the nurse who will administer first aid and advise as to further follow up.
    • Elevator keys are provided for medical reasons. Please be advised that keys lost or not returned will incur a $5.00 fee. 

      Please consider the following when deciding whether or not to send your child to school:

    • Can your child be attentive and learn with his/her current  symptoms?
    • Will your child’s symptoms affect other students and  staff?
