All students who require medications during school hours must have a medication form filled out by their physician and signed by the parent/guardian. All medication (even over the counter medication such as Tylenol or Advil) must be brought into the Health Office by the parent/guardian in the original container with the student’s name clearly labeled on the container. Please contact the Registered Nurse in your child’s building if you have any questions.
As of July 1, 2018, New York State is changing the mandated health examination requirements. Physicals are now required for kindergarten and grades 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11. Physicals must be submitted/mailed to the nurses’ office within the first 30 days of school. Proof of doctor appointment for mandated physical years will be accepted within the 30 day period.
If your child’s physical is less than a year old as of the first day of school, you do not need another physical. Any further questions, contact (631) 382-2104. The office is open during the summer months from 8:00 am – 3:00 pm.
