Important Reminders for the 2018-2019 School Year

VACCINATION

CaduceusAll 7, 8, 9 and 12 grades need meningococcal vaccine to attend school. This is a N.Y. State requirement. Check with your child’s health provider to see if they have had it.

PHYSICAL EXAM

New York State requires all new students and those students entering grades 7, 9 and 11 to have a physical exam (health appraisal). If your child is a new student or will be entering 7th, 9th or 11th grade in September 2018, you must submit to our office a physical exam that has been done within the past year. We suggest keeping a copy of your child’s physical exam for your own records.

SPORTS PHYSICAL/FAMILY ID

All students wishing to participate in sports must have parent/guardian register them at www.mufsd.com/athletics/family id within 30 days of each sport. In addition all athletes must have a current NYS physical exam on file in health office. Current PE means less than 1 year old.

MEDICATIONS

A medication order form must be completed by a parent/guardian and your health care provider in order for your child to take, carry or to be given medication by the school nurse. Please note nurses are not permitted to give any medication even OTC medication without a signed MD note. If your child gets frequent headaches, or menstrual discomfort we strongly advise to send in completed forms with medication so we can dispense if needed. All medication must be in the original container and clearly labeled.

All completed forms should be mailed or faxed (631-298-3844) directly to the health office by 8/22/18.
