Important: New Medical Requirements

Important: New Medical Requirements

The grade levels for mandated physicals have changed.

Dear Arlington Families:

 

There have been two important changes to New York State Education laws that are effective July 1st, 2018:

 

1) The grade levels for mandated physicals have changed.  All students must have a physical exam no more than 12 months before:

  • Entering the District
  • Entering grades K, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11  

2) There is a Required form to document physicals.  All physical exams must be documented on the NEW required School Health Examination Form. It can be found at: Health Exam Form
                                

And a few vaccine reminders for you as we enter into the summer months:

  • Students who are entering 6th grade and who are 11 years of age in 2018-19 are required to receive the Tdap booster and/or 2nd dose of Varicella vaccine.
  • Students who are entering 7th grade in 2018-19 are required to receive their 1st dose of Meningococcal vaccine.
  • Students who are entering 12th grade in 2018-19 are required to receive their 2nd dose of Meningococcal vaccine.

Please return all documentation to the school Health Office within 30 days of your child’s entrance to school

 

Thank you for your cooperation and have a happy healthy summer.

Dr. DeSa,
Assistant Superintendent
