Health, Safety & Wellness!
The school district employs full-time registered nurses in every school building to serve the health needs of all students. School nurses work with students, staff and parents for the general improvement of children’s health and to detect deficiencies and/or disease.
Upon entering school, as required by Public Health Law 2164, your child’s immunization records, health history and current physical status will be reviewed by the nurse. The health office also conducts screening and testing for height, weight, vision, hearing and scoliosis. After each screening, parents will be contacted if additional follow-up is indicated.
All students who wish to participate in interscholastic sports are required to have a current physical (within one year) on file in the health office prior to tryouts and be registered on FamilyID.
Medication Management at all schools must be in accordance with state laws, and regulations. All medications administered at school by licensed school health professionals or taken by a student at school who is able to self-administer their own medication must have patient specific orders from a licensed medical healthcare provider. This is necessary for both prescription and nonprescription medications.
Immunization Requirements (NYS) Public Health Law Section 2164 and New York Codes, Rules and Regulations (NYCRR) Title 10, Subpart 66-1 require every student entering or attending public, private or parochial school in New York State (NYS) to be immune to diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, measles, mumps, rubella, poliomyelitis, hepatitis B, varicella and meningococcal in accordance with Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommendations. See requirements for school attendance on the left side of this page under Health Forms.
