Health

Annual Medical Examination - The New York State Education Law requires a physical for each new student and all 10th grade students. Parents have the option of using their family physician or the school's physician. A sports physical is also acceptable. If the physical exam form is not turned in by October 1st, a school physical will be scheduled. Physical exam forms are available in the Health Office. The school should be notified of any known student health problems or any changes in information previously submitted. Scoliosis screenings will be done annually for students under the age of 17 who have not had a physical. Vision screenings are performed on students annually. Hearing screenings are performed on all 10th grade students.

Administration of Medicine If a student must take any medication during school hours, the school will require:

1. A written request from the parent/guardian.
2. The written order of the prescribing physician indicating the name, purpose and dosage requirements of the medication.
3. The appropriate form requesting medications to be given in school can be obtained in the Health Office. It is acceptable for the physician to write the medication order on their prescription sheet instead.
4. All medication is to be dropped off and picked up by the parent/guardian at the beginning and end of the prescription period.
5. All medication must be in the original container. Ask your pharmacist for a double label for the school time doses.
