From the School Nurse
 
New York State has changed the grade levels mandated for physical examinations.  The mandated grades include: Pre-K, K, 2, 4, 7, and 10.  Physical examinations continue to be required for any student new to the district.  The change in the mandated physical examination provides an opportunity to follow the student's growth and development over an even distribution of time during their educational experience.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our school nurse, Diane Rilloraza, at (914) 376-8640.
