  • If your child is taking Medication throughout the school day, (including over the counter medication), a Medical Authorization Form MUST be completed by your physician and a parent/guardian.  The form can be printed from the links or obtained in the Nurses Office.  All medications, except for inhalers or over the counter eye drops, must be dropped off by a parent or guardian.  If your child is going to be carrying their medication on his/her person, a Medication Release Form must be completed by the parent/guardian and your physician.  A physician stamp must be present on the form.

  • Seventh Grade Physicals are Mandatory.  Please provide us with a copy of your child’s physical by October 1 of the present school year.  If proof of a physical is not provided, the student will then be examined by the school physician.  This is mandated by the New York State Education Law.  Please check in Nurses Office to make sure an up to date physical is on file.
