From the Nurse

                      News from the TRA Health Office


School physicals are required for all students entering grades K, 2nd, 4th, 7th and 10th along with all new entrants to the District. New York State has expanded health screenings to include the dental health of all students. When a physical is required for your child’s age level, we will also be requesting a Dental Health Certificate as well. Once it is completed, it should be returned to the Health Office, as it will be filed in your child’s Cumulative Health Record.

TRA School physicals will be held on December 6, 2011 with our school physician Dr. Jones. If you would like your child’s physical provided by your health care provider please contact the Health Office for the appropriate form. The Dental health Certificates will be sent home with your child within the next couple of weeks.

Thank you for your cooperation in this health endeavor. Our students’ benefit when we work together to promote the health and achievement of all students.

Thanks again,

Mary-Beth Purce
