New York State law requires that each child in a school district have a health examination including body mass index before entering school for the first time, and again in grades 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11. Students wishing to play interscholastic sports or requesting work permits must have an annual health exam. A dental exam form is also requested, but not required at these same times.
Your own health care provider is always the best choice for these exams. We encourage you to call early as it may take several weeks to schedule exams during the busy summer and fall months.
Vaccines are also required for school attendance. Please see the detailed information regarding Pre-K and Kindergarten, 6, 7th and 12th grade especially.
For additional information, we ask that you review the following documentation regarding vaccinations.
