New York State requires physicals for students in grades Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, and 11th. Also, any new entrants require a health appraisal before entering school.

The State of New York mandates that the school nurse follow the procedures listed below:

  1. All medication, including non-prescription drugs, given in school must be prescribed by a licensed medical doctor.
  2. A written request from the physician must be on file. This request must indicate the dosage and frequency of the prescribed drug. A written request from the parent to administer medication must be on file.
  3. The parent must assume responsibility for having the medication delivered to the Health Office in a properly labeled original container.

Please do not send any type of medication to school with your child unless you use the proper procedure.
