The State Education Law requires medical examinations of school children at specific grade levels. Requirements have changed as of July 2018.
A health certificate shall be furnished by each pupil in the public schools in grades UPK, K, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th and 11th as well as all new students. An examination of any child may be required by local school authorities at any time in their discretion to promote the educational interests of such child. The physical must be given within 12 months of school entrance, therefore any physical performed by a New York State physician since September 7, 2017 will be considered current.
Tdap AlertThe State of New York requires that all students who turn 11 years old have a Tdap immunization.If they are not immunized within 14 days after their 11th birthday, they will not be allowed to attend school.Acceptable proof of tetanus,diptheria and pertussis (Tdap) is a signed note from the doctor or the clinic where the shot was given. An appointment is sometimes not necessary, and they will also fax it to us at 839-6390.Any further questions, please call Mrs. Hartmann at 839-6372.
