SCHOOL HEALTH SERVICES

A school nurse assists those students who need health care while at school.  In the event a child becomes ill and is too ill to stay in school, the nurse will contact the parent, requesting that the parent come to pick up the child. 

PHYSICAL EXAMS AND HEALTH ASSESSMENTS

Physical examinations are required for students in grades Pre-K, K, 2, 4, 7, and 10, and all newly enrolled students.  Students in these grade levels and  new students without evidence of physical examination by a family physician will be examined by the school physician  The school physician also conducts physical examinations for interscholastic sports.

Vision, hearing and scoliosis screenings are conducted by the school nurse.  Parents are notified when results of testing procedures require follow-through.

IMMUNIZATIONS

New York State Public Health Law 2164 requires all students entering and attending school to be immunized.

Pre-K students are required to have the following immunizations: DTaP, Polio, MMR, HIB, Hepatits B, Varacella , and Pneumococcal.

Children entering  Kindergarten and all new entries need DTaP, Polio, MMR, Hepatitis B, and Varacella. 

Students who will be entering 6th grade in the fall and who are 11 years old or older, must receive an immunization call Tdap. This is a vaccine that protects your child against tetanus toxoids, diptheria and pertussis (whopping cough).

In order to avoid interruption of your child’s educational process, a period of two weeks will be allowed for you to make arrangements for the proper immunizations.

 MEDICATION

It is understood that certain circumstances require a child to take internal medication during school hours.

In order to comply with Education Law governing medication, the procedure listed must be followed and all requirements met:

    1. The medication and prescription must be delivered directly to the school nurse by a parent.
    2. The parent must complete a medication card which indicates medication, dosage and time given.
    3. The Physician must provide written requests for the school nurse to administer the medication, including frequency and dosage.

Students who need to take medication during school hours should make all arrangements with the school nurse.  No student is to take medication without having made prior arrangements with the nurse.  All medication will be kept in a locked cabinet.

 ACCIDENT-INJURY-ILLNESS

Accidents may occur.  All injuries and accidents must be reported to the teacher in charge, regardless how minor it might be.  The teacher will file a written report to the nurse within 24 hours of its occurrence.  Parents must file an emergency form with the information and directions about what they prefer be done in the event that emergency medical help should become necessary.  This form will be sent home with each student in September.  It is the responsibility of the parent to notify the school in the event that the emergency information changes.

An excess-type medical insurance is carried by the school.  This means that family insurance must be used first and the remaining balance reported under school insurance.
