All students who are 11 years or older entering 6th grade in the fall are required to have a Tdap immunization. Students who are 10 years old entering 6th grade need the vaccine on or after their 11th birthday.
All students entering the 6th grade are also required by NYS Dept of Health to show proof of varicella (chicken pox) immunization or doctor verification that your child has had the disease.
Notify health office of any changes in emergency contact information (home phone number, cell phone number and or address change).
ATTENDANCE POLICY-If your child is absent or tardy for any reason, you will need to call or email the nurse's office with the reason in the morning. However, my answering machine is always on and you may leave me a message at any time.
TARDINESS -When a student arrives at school after morning announcements he/she must report to the nurse's office before going to class.
EXCUSES - Legally, we must have written excuses concerning the reason a student was absent. All absences are considered illegal if no excuse is provided. If a parent emails me, I will use that email as the written excuse.
All new enterers, Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd and 5th graders are required by NYS law to have updated proof of immunizations and a physical exam for that year. It is requested that parents/guardians send a dental certificate for those grades as well.
