Attention current 11th Graders: 

New Immunization Requirements for


2018-2019!

Dear Parent/Guardian,                                  

 

Students entering the 12th grade for the school year 2018-2019 are required to have documentation of one dose of the Meningococcal vaccine (MenACWY/MCV4) after their 16th birthday, on file in the school health office prior to the start of the school year!  The MenB vaccine is NOT compliant with the regulations. You can find more information on the school’s website under the Health Services tab or at: http://www.health.ny.gov/diseases/communicable/meningococcal/

 

It is the parents responsibility to bring documentation to the school health office.  Providers do not send it automatically to the school!  You can request that your provider’s office fax them to 315-493-1401.  A record of your child’s immunizations from your health care provider or health department is acceptable.  A NYSIIS/NYCIR record is also acceptable.  The student’s name, date of birth and exact date each immunization was given must be included in the record. Handwritten records must be signed by the provider.  Look for common names, Menactra and Menveo. 

 

Your child will NOT be permitted to attend school without the required immunizations! 

If the student has not received the vaccine or needs the second dose, the required immunizations can be obtained from your family health care provider, your county health department, or school based health clinic if enrolled. Please contact the school health office with any further questions. 

 

Check the Immunization Page for more information!

NYS Immunization Survey

At the beginning of each school year every public school district is required by law to complete the NYS Department of Health Immunization Survey. This survey is conducted to make sure students are in compliance with immunizations required by law for entrance to public school. The school nurse does their best to notify parents of discrepancies and inform parents of due/overdue immunizations. The survey reports all students that are compliant, non-compliant or exempt. A medical exemption requires a doctors documentation of reason for exemption and is renewed annually. A religious exemption requires documentation/letter to the Superintendent of schools for approval. All information is collected anonymously.

Weight Status/BMI Survey

The NYS Department of Health also conducts a survey of student's weight status categories/BMI. They survey school districts on a bi-annual basis. All information is collected anonymously.
