Harpursville Central School District aims to provide an environment which is conducive to the growth and development of our students. We are concerned about the health and happiness of your student. Good health and good school work go hand in hand, with a cooperative effort between home and school. We will provide the best environment possible for your student to meet his/her goals and health needs.

Immunizations
 Required Immunizations for students in grades PK - 12.
 
September 2017 -  Immunization for Grades 7 and 12
According to the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), beginning September 2016, students entering 7th and 12th grades in New York State public, private and parochial schools will be required to be fully vaccinated against meningococcal disease. In anticipation of the upcoming school years requirement, please work with your healthcare provider to ensure all adolescents are fully vaccinated against meningococcal disease. The complete adolescent meningococcal vaccine series includes a first dose at 11 or 12 years of age and a second (booster) dose at 16 years of age. 
 
Please note: all vaccinations must be given at appropriate intervals per CDC recommendations.

Any student that does not meet NYS immunization requirements for school attendance, and does not have a medical or religious exemption, will not be allowed to enter school. The student and his/her family must provide proof from a physician or clinic showing compliance with the NYS immunization requirements for school attendance.

Medications
New York State Law requires that:
• Parents or guardians must personally deliver all medication to the school health office (unless a self carry order form is signed by parent and physician). All Controlled Medications must be brought by an adult.
• All medication must remain in properly labeled pharmacy or original over-the-counter (OTC) containers.
• A new prescription/medication form signed by the medical provider is required at the beginning of every school year.
• The parent/guardian must sign the medication permission form.
• Permission forms for medication administered must be filled out completely, meaning both guardian and provider needs to fill in their designated area. Should we receive a form that is not fully completed; the form will be considered null and void. We are not responsible for obtaining signed permission from your provider; it is your responsibility as their guardian.
 
We request that you ask your pharmacist to give you a second identically labeled container for any prescription medications your student will take at school. We also request that you bring small containers of any OTC medications that your student will take. This will allow the School Nurse to send these medications on field trips and comply with New York State laws pertaining to medication storage.
 
Medication forms are available on our district web site or may be obtained from the School Health Office. Your physician may use their own form if desired.
Physicals
School physicals are required for students in grades kindergarten, 2nd, 4th, 7th and 10th, and any new students. We recommend students to see their own medical providers when possible since your doctor knows your child best. If a physical exam cannot be provided by your own private doctor, the school physician will provide one for your child free of charge. If you chose to take your child to your own physician, a copy of the physical must be submitted to the health office by October 15. After this date, the student will be examined by the school physician.
 
 All physicals are vaild for 1 year from the date of the exam.
 
Junior and Senior High School students participating in sports must have an athletic physical scheduled through the appropriate health office.
Screenings
 NYS Mandated Screening Guidelines : Vision, Hearing, Scoliosis & Growth  

An annual vision and hearing screening will be done by the school nurse as mandated by New York State for all new enterants for the district as well as students in grades K, 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, and 10. These tests provide only a screening for potential problems. You will be notified of any deficiencies found. A follow up examination, by your physician, will be required for diagnosis and treatment.

Scoliosis screenings will be done on all students in grade 5-9. If the nurse suspects a problem, the student will be re-screened before a referral is made.

An annual growth assessments will be completed on grades PK, K, 2, 4, 7, 10
