MEMO from the Nurse
School Year 2018-19
Dear Parents or Guardians:New York State law requires that all 7th grade students must have a physical examination for the 2018- 2019 school year. New York State law also requires that students entering 7th grade receive the Meningococcal vaccine. This vaccine must be administered prior to September 18, 2018 or the student will be excluded from school.
We are requesting that your child’s healthcare provider complete the Body Mass Index and Weight Status information on the Health Appraisal Form. Please request that the provider complete that needed information in order to have a completed Health Appraisal on file at the school.If your child has a physical scheduled during the school year, please notify the Health Office with the date of the scheduled physical exam.
Your physician may also fax the physical to the Middle School Health Office as well. If you have any questions, please feel free to call me.
