ATTENTION PARENTS: Changes to School Health Exam Schedule and Immunization Requirements Effective July 1, 2018
New York State has made changes to its school health exam schedule as well as requirements for the meningococcal vaccine, effective July 1, 2018.
To prevent Communicable Disease and due to New York State requirement, all students must be immunized; no student will be allowed to attend LaFayette Central Schools without proof of the following minimum requirements:
Acceptable proof of immunization should be provided in a form of certificate from physician or clinic specifying types and dates of immunization or disease; or blood test results that shows proof of immunity. When a range exists, the NYS Department of Health may require your child to receive the higher dosage listed in the chart below.
You can download a PDF of these requirements HERE.
After June 21, please send proof of immunization to the school nurse where your child will be attending school in the fall.
Proof of immunization must be any 1 of the 3 items listed below:
Important Information From the Nurses Office:
• If your child requires nebulizer treatments, please provide the nurse with: MD order, medication and the tubing with a mouthpiece.
• Kids with asthma may carry their rescue inhaler with them if the nurse has a MD note on file indicating that this is okay. We strongly recommend that a back up inhaler be housed at the nurse’s office. Please tell your child to notify the nurse early if they are using the rescue inhaler more than once in the day so that she can monitor his/her lungs and avert a crisis.
• Medications administered at school must be carried into the nurse’s office by an adult. The medication must be presented with a MD script indicating school hour’s administration, a written parental request for school administration and be in the original container; same rules apply for over-the-counter medication.
• State laws prohibit us from giving any medication without a MD order. School nurses do not have supplies of Tylenol, Motrin, Midol… in their offices.
• If your child has a medical condition (asthma, diabetes, epilepsy, allergy…) please let us know!
Any Questions? PLEASE Give us a call!
