Physicals: New Student Health Examination form
New York State law requires a physical examination for students entering UPK, Kindergarten, Grades 1, 3, 5,7, 9, 11 and all students transferring into the Lakeland Central School District. These examinations may be completed on the suggested NYS Student Health Examination Form for School. http://www.lakelandschools.org/document_center/Departments/Health%20Office/NYS_Health_Exam_Form.pdf
Thank you to the parent/guardians who sent the required paperwork to the Health Office already. Physical forms are due by October 4, 2019. Please make a copy for your records. Students who do not return evidence of a physical examination dated after 9/3/18 or the date of an appointment will have a health appraisal scheduled with our Chief Medical Officer. Parents/Guardians will be informed of the date. If you have any questions, please call the health office.
As a reminder please alert the health office during the school year to discuss with the school nurse these medical issues:
- A student has or has recently recovered from a serious illness
- A student has been hospitalized
- A student has had surgery
- A student has sustained an injury requiring medical treatment
Documentation from your health care provider will be needed to return to school with or without restrictions for PE and recess. Documentation will be required whether or not the child is required to use crutches or other equipment if needed.
Absences must be called in daily before 8:45AM. Please call GW # 528-2021 press # 1 and leave a clear message including name of child, grade, and reason for absence. Please leave details of illness: fever, flu like symptoms, cough, sore throat, GI symptoms etc. Students must be fever free for 24 hours without fever reducing medication before returning to school. Per Board policy a written excuse must be presented by the student on the day when returning to school following an absence. If the written excuse is not submitted within 48 hours following such absence, it will be considered an unexcused absence.
Thank you for your cooperation!
