DO NOT send your student to school if they are sick!! 

Your student will be sent home when presenting with a
fever 100 degrees or greater and/or vomiting.  They should be fever free for 24 hours without
the use of fever free medication or 
(vomiting free for 24 hours) prior to the return of school.

 New York State Education Department mandates for Health Examinations:
  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; and working papers as needed; or as required by the Committee on Special Education (CSE) or Committee on Pre-School Special education (CPSE).

This includes all medications such as aspirin, nose drops, decongestants, antibiotics, etc. If your child needs to take medicine during school hours, please have your doctor send a written note stating the child's name, the name of the medication, the amount of medicine to be taken, the hour it is to be given, and the date the medication is to be stopped.







 

 
 
Important Information
***Emails and phone messages are checked periodically throughout the day but only on school days during school hours.

Stay at home if you have any Covid-19 symptoms and perform a home covid antigen test before returning to school. 

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.

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.

Notify health office of any changes in emergency contact information (home phone number, cell phone number and or address change).

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.
