ATTENTION PARENTS: Changes to School Health Exam Schedule and Immunization Requirements Effective July 1, 2018

New York State has made changes to its school health exam schedule as well as requirements for the meningococcal vaccine, effective July 1, 2018. 

Beginning July 1, 2018, all New York State public school students must have a health exam when they enter school as a new entrant and in Pre-K or Kindergarten and grades 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, and 11. While we request that new examinations be completed on the the new  NYSED Student Health Examination Form for Schools, for this school year only,  the physical may be submitted on any form that your provider's office uses. Please send the completed exam form that your provider uses to your school nurse before the first day of the new school year. 

Regarding the new exam form, use of the NYSED Student Health Examination form will be required for the 2019-2020 school year. You can download the new form by clicking HERE.

For more information on physicals, click HERE.

For information on the meningococcal vaccine, click HERE.

To prevent Communicable Disease and due to New York State requirement, all students must be immunized; no student will be allowed to attend the Baldwinsville Central Schools without proof of the following minimum requirements:

Acceptable proof of immunization should be provided in a form of certificate from physician or clinic specifying types and dates of immunization or disease; or blood test results that shows proof of immunity. When a range exists, the NYS Department of Health may require your child to receive the higher dosage listed in the chart below.

You can download a PDF of these requirements HERE.

After June 21, please send proof of immunization to the school nurse where your child will be attending school in the fall.
Proof of immunization must be any 1 of the 3 items listed below:
  • An immunization certificate signed by your health care provider
  • Immunization Registry report (NYSIIS or CIR from NYC) from your health care provider or your county health department
  • A blood test (titer) lab report that proves your child is immune to the diseases
    • For varicella (chickenpox), a note from your health care provider (MD, NP, PA) which says your child had the disease is also acceptable.


Important Information From the Nurses Office:

All schools now have a nebulizer in the nurse’s office!!! If your child requires nebulizer treatments, please provide the nurse with: MD order, medication and the tubing with a mouthpiece.

• Kids with asthma may carry their rescue inhaler with them if the nurse has a MD note on file indicating that this is okay. We strongly recommend that a back up inhaler be housed at the nurse’s office. Please tell your child to notify the nurse early if they are using the rescue inhaler more than once in the day so that she can monitor his/her lungs and avert a crisis.

Medications administered at school must be carried into the nurse’s office by an adult. The medication must be presented with a MD script indicating school hour’s administration, a written parental request for school administration and be in the original container; same rules apply for over-the-counter medication.

State laws prohibit us from giving any medication without a MD order. School nurses do not have supplies of Tylenol, Motrin, Midol… in their offices.

• If your child has a medical condition (asthma, diabetes, epilepsy, allergy…), ask the nurse to complete one of our newly developed individual Care Plans with you. These new forms allow you to acknowledge your child’s unique needs. They will be kept in a secure area in the nurse’s office for reference.
