Physical examination information

  • Health Appraisal Forms (Physicals) and screening requirements and guidelines (Updated for 2018-19)

    Effective 7/2018 - New Yorks State now requires all students entering K, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th and 11th grade as well as new entrants to have a physical completed by a NYS licensed physician.  Dental certificates are also recommended to be submitted on physical required years.  Please have your child's provider complete the forms below and return via fax to the MS/HS Health office at (585)243-8086.

    Hearing, near vision and distance acuity screenings are required of all students entering K, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, and 11th grade.  New entrants will need color perception screening in addition.  5th and 7th grade girls as well as 9th grade boys are required to have a scoliosis screening.  If any of these screenings are not completed by your child's physician, they will be done at the health office.


    Please note that both the grade levels and physical form required have changed.  Due to HIPPA regulations - providers are requiring and enforcing written consent for the nurse to obtain school physicals.  The best way to make sure I receive a copy is to mail one to me, have it faxed to my direct line at (585)243-8086, or drop it off at the office!
