Immunizations


As of July 1, 2018 New York State law requires a health examination for all students entering the school district for the first time and when entering Pre-K or K, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th and 11th grade.
 
The examination must be completed by a New York State licensed physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner and on the approved NYSED Student Health Examination Form for School.  
 
A dental certificate which states your child has been seen by a dentist or dental hygienist is also asked for at the same time.
Thank you for your attention to these new immunization requirements.
 
If you have any questions or concerns about immunizations, please contact the school health staff.
