New York State Physical Requirements:
Each new student, within thirty days of his or her entrance into school, must submit to the school a report of a physical exam.
Within 30 days of starting Prek or K, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, and 11th grade, a report must be submitted.
This report of a physical exam (Health Certificate / Appraisal Form) must be completed and signed by a New York State licensed physician, physician assistant, or nurse practitioner.
The date of the physical exam is not to be more than twelve months prior to the beginning of the school year in which the examination is required.
A notice will be sent to the parents or guardians of any student who does not provide the school with the report of physical exam (Health Certificate / Appraisal Form). If the report is not turned in within 30 days of that notice, the school physician will examine your child at the school.
