Required Immunizations for students in grades K - Grade 7.

Immunization for Grades 7 and 12
According to the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), beginning September 2016, students entering 7th and 12th grades in New York State public, private and parochial schools will be required to be fully vaccinated against meningococcal disease. In anticipation of the upcoming school years requirement, please work with your healthcare provider to ensure all adolescents are fully vaccinated against meningococcal disease. The complete adolescent meningococcal vaccine series includes a first dose at 11 or 12 years of age and a second (booster) dose at 16 years of age.

New York State Law requires that:

• Parents or guardians must personally deliver all medication to the school health office (unless a self carry order form is signed by parent and physician). All Controlled Medications must be brought by an adult.
• All medication must remain in properly labeled pharmacy or original over-the-counter (OTC) containers.
• A new prescription/medication form signed by the medical provider is required at the beginning of every school year.
• The parent/guardian must sign the medication permission form.
• Permission forms for medication administered must be filled out completely, meaning both guardian and provider needs to fill in their designated area. Should we receive a form that is not fully completed; the form will be considered null and void. We are not responsible for obtaining signed permission from your provider; it is your responsibility as their guardian.

We request that you ask your pharmacist to give you a second identically labeled container for any prescription medications your student will take at school. We also request that you bring small containers of any OTC medications that your student will take. This will allow the School Nurse to send these medications on field trips and comply with New York State laws pertaining to medication storage.

Medication forms are available on our district web site or may be obtained from the School Health Office. Your physician may use their own form if desired.

School physicals are required for students in grades Pre-K or K; 1st, 3rd; 5th; 7th; 9th; 11th and any new students. If you chose to take your child to your own physician, a copy of the physical must be submitted to the health office within 30 days.  
Junior and Senior High School students participating in sports must have an athletic physical scheduled through the appropriate health office.

All students in grades Pre-K or kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th and 10th, new entrants, and others as deemed necessary will be screened for distance acuity (far vision).

A hearing screening will be done on all students in grades kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, 5th 7th, and 11th, as well as all new entrants and others deemed as necessary.

Scoliosis(Curvature of the Spine)
Scoliosis screenings will be done on male students in Grade 9; and female students in Grades 5th and 7th. If the nurse suspects a problem, the student will be re-screened before a referral is made.
