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

- Wear your mask if you have continuing symptoms (and a negative covid test).
- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you sneeze, and throw it away.
- Try to keep your hands away from your face and eyes. Cold and flu viruses enter the body through your nose, eyes, and mouth.

- When you have cold or flu symptoms, clean and disinfect telephones, door handles, keyboards, and light switches
- Wash your hands often with soap and water, rubbing the hands together for 20 seconds and rinsing with water. Dry hands with a paper towel and throw it away. Proper and frequent handwashing is your best protection against disease.
