Important update about school physical exam forms

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Education Law requires a physical exam for new entrants and students in Grades Pre-K or K, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 & 11; annually for interscholastic sports; and working papers as needed; or as required by the Committee on Special Education (CSE) or Committee on Preschool Special education (CPSE)

Beginning January 31, 2021, physical examinations for school are to be documented on the NYS Required Health Examination Form or an electronic health record equivalent form. Local pediatricians were advised of this new requirement in May 2020; therefore, your pediatrician should have the required forms on file.

The school district is unable to accept health exam documentation if it is not on the required form or the required health record equivalent.

If you have questions, please contact your school nurse:
