NYS Physical Examination Requirement
NYSED requires a physical exam for new entrants and students in Grades Pre-K or K, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 & 11; 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). The linked NYS School Health Examination form is required to be completed in entirety by a private health care provider or school medical director. If we do not receive your child's exam by October 30th, we will have your child seen by our school doctor. Please call our school nurse if you do not wish your child to have an in-school exam.
