                 Guidelines to Stay Home 

We have just received notification of some changes regarding health requirements for September 2018. Health examinations by your doctor will now be required in Pre K or K, 1, 3, 5, and 7. Not to worry, I will send notices home. 
These changes go into effect on July 1 for the 2018-2019 school year.
 This year, grades K, 2, 4, and 7 are required to have current physicals.

 Athletes are still required to have a yearly physical as well as a health history each season.

Cold and flu season is here. Please follow the above guidelines if you are unsure about keeping your child home. Please do not give your child medication and send them to school.
Children must be fever and gastric upset free for 24 hours without the use of medication to return to school.

Our school policy requires you call the office to let us know your child will be absent. You are also required to send a note when they return.

NO child will be allowed to miss PE or recess for more than 2 days without a doctor's note. This is for all medical issues.
Physical education and physical activity are important steps in a healthy lifestyle.

If your child can not participate in PE or recess, they may not participate in after school activities.
Please have your doctor's note include your child's diagnosis, type of restrictions, and return to activity date( if known ).

A reminder about medications: all medication must be brought in by a parent. Written permission from a parent is required. A prescription is required from the doctor. No medication may be sent in with a child. There are no exceptions to this.

I will be doing vision and hearing screening as per NYS guidelines. If there are any problems, I will let you know.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to call me.

Thanks so much for your cooperation.
