NYSED: School physical deadline extended to Sept. 1, 2021

On May 11, the New York State Department of Education approved an emergency action to extend the deadline for yearly health physicals for students.

Considering the COVID-19 pandemic, students who are unable to obtain a health examination for 2020-21 due to the COVID-19 crisis have until September 1, 2021 to provide the required health examination to the school.

The district physician will complete a physical examination at the beginning of the 2021-22 school year for students who do not provide a health examination certificate from a private healthcare provider for the 2020-2021 school year by September 1, 2021.

If you have questions, please contact your school nurse.

Effective May 11, students who are unable to obtain a health examination in the required grade have until September 1, 2021, to obtain the required health examination.
