  • Step 3: The following medical documentation must be received to complete the registration process:
  1. A current New York State Health exam completed by your child’s physician. The exam is valid for a period of one year from the completion date. (For example, if your child’s physical exam was completed in August 2022, they will require an updated physical in August 2023.)
  2. Immunization record: An up-to-date immunization record must be provided. Please use the chart below to verify your child has all necessary immunizations.

The nurse’s office will review these submitted health documents and will make you aware of any missing immunization(s) required. Please note that your child will not be fully registered until he/she has been cleared by the school nurse, and registration cannot take place until these documents are received.

Important: In-person appointments will be scheduled only after all documentations are submitted online.
