IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THE BEGINNING OF THE SCHOOL YEAR

Physical exams are mandated by New York State law for children entering KINDERGARTEN, SECOND, FOURTH and SEVENTH grades and for all new entrants to Holy Family School. NYS law states that the physical must be done within a year of the first day of school. This means that the exam you submit for the 2014/2015 school year must be dated on or after September 3, 2013. Please make sure forms are completely filled out. Before you leave your physician’s office check to see that the form is signed, dated and stamped. Medical forms may be downloaded on the school web site. Computerized forms from your physician’s office are also acceptable.

Please send completed physical forms in with your child on the first, second or third day of school. If you have scheduled a physical exam after the first day of school please send a note to me indicating when it will be done.

PLEASE TAKE NOTE - If your child is to start kindergarten in September he/she will need a second Varicella (chicken pox) vaccine BEFORE school begins. In addition SIXTH GRADE students are required to have a Tdap vaccine and a second varicella immunization as well. The additional varicella vaccine is a new NYS law.

Feel free to call me if you have any questions.
