Does your child need a medical exam?
Aug. 16, 2018 -- New York state has made changes in its health regulations effective July 1, which may affect when children must receive health exams and certain health screenings. 
  • A health exam will be required for all students enrolling in the district for the first time, and for all children entering pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, and grades 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, and 11 in the fall.
  • Vision and hearing screenings will be required within 6 months of admission to school and in pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, and grades 1, 3, 5, 7, and 11.
  • Scoliosis screenings will be required for girls in grades 5 and 7, and for boys in grade 9.
Parent, please do not wait to schedule your child’s medical appointment. This is also a good time to review your child’s immunization records with their pediatrician to ensure your child has the required vaccinations for their age and grade in school. This will help ensure your child meets all requirements before the start of the 2018-19 school year.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school nurse at your child's school or your family's pediatrician.
