To participate in sports, a current physical and immunization record must be on file with your child's health office. The exam must be dated within one year from the start date of the selected sport (ex. fall sports - 8/1/20 or later).
Additionally, NYSED requires an updated interval health history form. This form shall be completed by the parent/guardian and turned in to your child’s health office prior to each season.
