District Health Services

If your child is out sick, attendance calls should be made to their school's main office. Please state the child's name, grade and teacher and reason for absence. All other school related health concerns can be answered by the nurse's office.

The Nurse’s Office is concerned with the overall health and well-being of the student and how his/her health impacts the educational process. It is important for the parent or guardian to keep the nurse informed of any health concerns. All information will be treated with sensitivity and confidentiality. For matters of an urgent nature that need immediate nursing attention please contact the nurse via telephone rather than by email.

COVID-19 Return-to-School Protocol

Any student who has been diagnosed or has tested positive for COVID-19 must provide a notation of medical clearance to resume both physical education and athletics. This is not an additional diagnostic COVID-19 test showing negative results. The concern is that COVID-19 may have had long lasting effects on your child’s health status.

New York State now requires this specific form for the documentation of the examination. If the examination is not on the specific form or its electronic equivalent, we are not permitted to accept it.

All 9th and 11th grade students are required to have a current physical examination on file in the Nurse’s Office.

Health Forms

Sports Requirements (7th Grade)


  • If you haven't already done so, you need to create an account.
  • If you already have an account with Family ID, registration is opened for each specific season approximately one month prior to the start of tryouts.
  • Physical examinations are valid for an entire 12 months extending through the sport season in which the physical date expires. The notification from Family ID that your physical is expiring should serve as a reminder to make an appointment for your next physical exam. A new document is only needed if the previous physical exam has expired as indicated in Family ID or if you have not yet submitted one to Family ID or the Nurse's Office
