Dear Parents/Guardians,                                                                  

New York State law requires that each child in a school district have a health examination (physical) including body mass index when entering school for the first time and in grades Pre-K, K, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11

The examination must be completed by a New York State licensed physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner and on the approved NYSED Student Health Examination Form for School. The physical form will be available on the district website.

A dental certificate which states your child has been seen by a dentist or dental hygienist is also requested at the same time.  The school will provide you with a list of dentists and registered dental hygienists who offer dental services on a free or reduced cost basis if you ask for it.

  • A copy of the health examination must be provided to the school within 30 days from when your child first starts at the school. If a copy is not given to the school within this time frame, the school’s principal or designee will contact you.
  • For your convenience, a physical exam form and dental certificate for your health care providers are enclosed.
  • Communication between private and school health staff is important for safe and effective care at school. Your healthcare provider may not share health information with school health staff without your signed permission. Please talk to your provider about signing their consent form for the school at the time of your child’s appointment for the examination. 

We suggest you make copies of the completed forms for your own records before sending them to the school health office. Forms may also be faxed to your child’s school health office.

Sincerely,

Pine Bush School District Nurses

Estimados padres/tutores:                                                                  

A partir del 1 de julio de 2018, la ley del estado de Nueva York requiere un examen de salud para todos los estudiantes que ingresan al distrito escolar por primera vez y también cuando ingresan a Pre-K,  K, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, y 11th grado.  

El examen debe ser completado por un médico, asistente médico o enfermero practicante con licencia del estado de Nueva York y en el Formulario de examen de salud estudiantil aprobado por el NYSED para la escuela. El formulario físico estará disponible en el sitio web del distrito. A partir de este envío, el Departamento de Salud NO proporcionará un período de gracia para exámenes físicos e inmunizaciones. Los estudiantes deben estar al día para la apertura de la escuela

Al mismo tiempo, también se solicita un certificado dental que acredite que su hijo ha sido visto por un dentista o higienista dental. La escuela le proporcionará una lista de dentistas e higienistas dentales registrados que ofrecen servicios dentales de forma gratuita oa un costo reducido si usted lo solicita.

  •  Se debe proporcionar una copia del examen de salud a la escuela dentro de los 30 días desde que su hijo comienza por primera vez en la escuela y cuando su hijo comienza K, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th. 9th y 11th  Los grados. Si no se entrega una copia a la escuela dentro de los 30 días, la escuela se comunicará con usted.
  •  Si su hijo tiene una cita para un examen durante este año escolar que es después de los primeros 30 días de clases, notifique la fecha a la Oficina de Salud.
  •  Para su comodidad, se adjunta un formulario de examen físico y un certificado dental para sus proveedores de atención médica.
  • La comunicación entre el personal de salud privado y escolar es importante para una atención segura y eficaz en la escuela. Su proveedor de atención médica no puede compartir información de salud con el personal de salud de la escuela sin su permiso firmado. Hable con su proveedor acerca de firmar su formulario de consentimiento para la escuela en el momento de la cita de su hijo para el examen. 

Le sugerimos que haga copias de los formularios completos para sus propios registros antes de enviarlos a la oficina de salud de la escuela. Los formularios también se pueden enviar por fax a la oficina de salud de la escuela de su hijo.

Atentamente,

Enfermeras del Distrito Escolar de Pine Bush
