Health Policies and Guidelines

Medication Authorization and Medical Action Plans

All prescribed medication and over-the-counter medication to be administered during the school day must be accompanied by a written prescription from their doctor and the Medication Authorization form signed by the parent.  Medication must be brought to school by an adult in the original pharmacy container per New York State. The nurse must have documentation for medical action plans in place while the child is attending school. If your child requires any of the below while at school, download the appropriate form(s) and return them, completed, to the nurse.

Mandatory Health Screenings

New York State Education Law requires that students receive vision, hearing and scoliosis screenings as part of the school health services provided by each public school district. The purpose of these screenings is to detect the presence of problems likely to impede a student’s learning. If the results of the screening indicate that your child requires further follow-up, you will receive written notification.


Annual Physical

NYSED requires an annual physical exam for new entrants, students in grades K, 2, 4, 7 and 10, sports, working permits and triennially for the Committee on Special Education.

Dental Health
