Please send in a current physical for your child yearly. The following is a list of reasons that they are needed:

Sports: Every student needs a physical that is current (within a year) of when the try-out begins. If it isn’t current, they cannot try-out.

Registration: A Recent physical is needed when you register your child to attend any Nanuet School.

New York State Mandated Screenings & Physical Exams:

Scoliosis Screenings: Mandatory that every 9th grade have a screening on file. If they don’t have a physical they will be screened by the nurse. This may occur during class time.

Annual physicals: All 10th graders are required to have.

Hearing & Vision Screenings: Required for all 10th graders.

**These mandated screenings will be done in school if we don’t have a record of it by your child’s private physician.

*** Please send in all annual physical forms so we can avoid duplicating services and avoid taking your child out of class.

Immunizations: required for every student.

**New for the 2016/17 School Year: As per N.Y. State Public Health Law, section 2164 students entering the 7th & 12th grade must have the Meningococcal vaccine. All 12th graders must have 2 Mennigitis vaccines. To learn more about this visit: health.ny.gov/Immunize.

Sports Forms:

All students who want to play a sport must have a physical examination either with their personal Dr. or with Dr. Ingrassia the school physician. All physicals must be dated 1 year prior to the date of the sports first day of practice. It must be brought to the Health Office along with the consent/health update form & emergency card in order to be eligible to play a sport.

**An athletic physical performed by Dr. Ingrassia fulfills the 10th grade N.Y.S. requirement mentioned above.
