All students in third grade and any students new to the Cortland School District require a current physical exam. If your child does not have a written physical exam from your healthcare provider, he/she will be scheduled for a physical exam at school. Physical exams are scheduled every Tuesday morning with Kelly Hirsh, NP.
Under Section 2164 of the New York State Public Health Law, all children entering and attending school must be immunized. It is the responsibility of parents to provide proof of immunization for their child to the school. Proof of immunization is required by the fourteenth calendar day, Thursday, September 19th, 2019. After that date, children without proof of immunization will not be allowed to attend school until his/her immunizations and records are brought up to date. For a detailed listing of the immunizations required or if you have any questions, please contact our school nurse.
Head lice is a common and chronic problem in schools. We want to inform you of this so that you can check and monitor your child for any signs of lice. If you discover that your child has lice, treat their hair and comb daily with a nit comb for 21 days and inform the school. Please call the nurse with any questions.
Please wash and return any clothes borrowed from the nurse as soon as possible.
