NEW PHYSICAL GUIDELINES FOR THE 2018-2019 SCHOOL YEAR
**New York State guidelines regarding physicals have changed.

Acceptable health certificates may be dated anytime within 12 months prior to the start of the 2018-2019 school year. It is recommended that this examination be scheduled with your family health care provider who knows your child best.
