WORKING CARDS are available for students ages 14/15 (BLUE non-factory working card),
and 16/17 (GREEN-general working card).
HOW DO I GET A WORKING CARD:
In order to get your working card--you MUST complete the NYS Working Card Application, and you must either have a current physical on file---obtain a physical with your doctor, or have your doctor fill out a "Physically Fit for Work" declaration. These are all available at the bottom of this page to make things faster for your convenience!!
1. Download the NYS WORKING CARD APPLICATION! Complete Part I ONLY: Your name, Address, Age--and your parent or guardian must sign the form electronically. Email this to the School Nurse as soon as you complete it.
2. You must have a current physical on file with the School Nurse's Office. The Nurse will email you back & inform you if you are all set - or she will send you a request for your doctor's office to fax a physical dated within the last 12 months--or you can ask your doctor to complete the "Physically Fit for Work" form.
3. Once the Nurse's Office has the NYS Working Card application returned with Part I completed & signed by parent/guardian, a current physical or physical fitness form, the Nurse will complete the working card & mail it to you. (You will also receive an email notification that your card is on its way!)
4. Upon receiving the working card, you will need to sign the card where marked before you can use it.
