A message for families regarding student physicals

ALL students who are new to South Colonie School District or who are entering grades Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 & 11 are required to have a physical examination by their Health Care Provider within 30 days of school starting in September.

Any physical completed after September 5, 2019, is acceptable for the 2020-21 school year. 

Per New York state guidance, any student who does not turn in documentation of a physical exam is permitted to be scheduled for a health appraisal by the South Colonie Medical Director beginning in January.

If you have already turned in your physical exam documentation to your school nurse we appreciate it and you can disregard this email.

Please contact District Nurse Coordinator Mary Downey downeym@scolonie.org with questions.
