School Health Appraisals (Physicals)

Health appraisals are required on the NYSED form for ALL students new to the district, in Pre-K or Kindergarten, Grades 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11. Health appraisals are also required to participate in interscholastic sports.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that school age children receive a complete health appraisal by their primary medical provider each year. Regular visits with a primary care provider promote continuity of care and ability to better track growth and development.

*REQUIRED for School Entrance*

Please submit the required school health exam form, found at the bottom of this page, from your private provider to the school nurse, no more than thirty (30) days after the start of the school year (Education Law §903, 8 NYCRR §136.3 [c][1]). If your child has an appointment for an exam that is after the first thirty (30) days of school, NYS requires you to notify the School Nurse, no more than thirty (30) days after the start of the school year, with the appointment date and time.

Student Health History Update

This form is to be completed by the parent prior to the school health appraisal. The school physician will review this at the time of the health appraisal (form on this page).
