Education Law requires all New York State (NYS) public school students to have a health exam when they are a new student in a school district and when they enter Pre-K or Kindergarten, and grades 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, and 11.
Effective 2/1/21, schools can no longer accept the health exam if it is not on the required NYS Health Exam Form or an electronic health record equivalent form.
ONLY the approved form or electronic equivalent form will be accepted by the schools for health examinations conducted on or after 1/31/21.
Here is the link to the REQUIRED NYS SCHOOL HEALTH EXAMINATION FORM with instructions for your health care provider (HCP). Please share this information, at your child’s visit for a health exam, with the health care provider (HCP). This is typically your doctor but may be a nurse practitioner or physician assistant. A list of frequently asked questions can also be found on the New York State Center for School Health website.
If you have questions, please contact your school nurse:
