This letter is to inform you of two important changes in Education Law effective July 1, 2018.
Beginning July 1, 2018 all New York State public school students must have a health exam when they enter school as a new entrant and in Pre-K or Kindergarten and grades 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, and 11. These examinations must be completed on the approved NYS Student Health Examination Form for School.
We understand that your medical provider’s office may not yet be aware of the change, so if you have already had a physical examination completed for the 2018-19 school year on a different form, it will be accepted. Physicals dated on or after September 4, 2017 will satisfy the requirement for 2018 – 2019.
The approved NYSED Student Health Examination Form for Schools is available on the Lakeland Central School District Website. In 2019-2020 ONLY the approved NYS School Health Examination form will be accepted. At this time, a dental examination is also suggested.
Please submit a current physical along with your child’s dental examination by September 28, 2018. Dental Health Certificate Form
We appreciate your time in collaborating with us to provide your child with the required documentation as required by law.
