    New York State law requires students in grades *K,1,3,5,7,9 and 11,* as well as new entrants, to have a physical examination.  NYS law also requires Body Mass Index (BMI) and weight-status-category for students in grades *K,1,3,5,7,9 and 11,* as well as new entrants, to be reported for these grade levels.

    Note about medications in school

    Medication administration in school requires a written order from a licensed prescriber along with written parental permission. All medications (prescription and over-the-counter) must adhere to these guidelines. Medication must be brought in by a parent/guardian (adult) in the original container.  Medications CAN NOT be brought to school by a student via the bus.
