    THE NYS EDUCATION DEPARTMENT has asked schools to not schedule physical exams with their School Medical Director's until early 2021. *We will alert parents when there is an update* In the mean time, this gives parents the opportunity to have their child seen by their own physician and more time to do so! Usually, NYSED asks that the mandated physical be completed within 60 days from the start of school year.
     
    The same mandated grade levels & status apply, see below:
     
    SCHOOL PHYSICALS - (HEALTH APPRAISALS) Students in grades Pre-K / K, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th,
     
    9th, 11thALL new enterers/returnee's, students participating in sports & students applying for
     
    a working cards are required to have a current physical  within last 12 months). Physical exams are
     
    offered throughout the school year at no charge. Our Medical Director is Dr. Pamela Salzmann. If
     
    you prefer that your child have a physical with their  own doctor, please contact your child's
     
    School Nurse and let them know, and your child will not be scheduled for a physical. You will
     
    need to provide a copy of your child's physical to the nurse as soon as possible, however. NO CHILD
     
    will be approved for sports participation without a current physical on file  with the School Nurse. If
     
    your School Nurse does not receive a copy of the required physical within 60 days of the start
     
    of the school year (unless you give your child's School Nurse an appointment date) your child
     
    will receive a school health appraisal with Dr. Salzmann per NYS Department of Education Law 
     
    903(3)(a) & 8 NYCRR 136.3 (c)(1)(iii).
