Immunizations
New York State Law requires students to have a number of vaccines in order to enter school. Required vaccines include:
              * 2 Measles, Mumps and Rubella vaccines (MMR)
              * 3 Hepatitis B vaccines
              * 3 Polio and Dipthereia-Tetanus-Pertussis vaccines
              * Chicken Pox vaccine.
Students entering 6th grade must have a Tdap vaccine (Diptheria-Tetanus-Pertussis booster).
 
Medicine in School
In order for students to take medicine in school, we must have written permission from a doctor, physician's assistant or nurse practitioner, written parent permission, and the medicine in the original container.
WE ARE NOT ABLE TO GIVE OR ALLOW CHILDREN TO HAVE COUGH DROPS, TYLENOL, COUGH SYRUP, ETC. AT SCHOOL WITHOUT WRITTEN PERMISSION FROM THE DOCTOR AND PARENT.
 
Contagious Illness
If your child has signs of contagious illness, such as:
            * VOMITING     
            * FEVER
            * FREQUENT COUGH
            * RASH
            * YELLOW DISCHARGE FROM THE EYE OR EAR
            * LACK OF SLEEP
it may be a good idea to keep him or her home for the day, in order to recover, and to avoid spreading the illness to classmates.
