EDUCATION LAW, SECTION 903 

Requires a physical examination of each child entering school for Kindergarten and at these selected grades as well: Grade 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11. In addition, any student new to the Honeoye School District at any grade level must have a physical examination. It is recommended that these examinations be done by the family physician as he/she is most familiar with the health needs of your child. The examination should be dated no more than one year prior to the beginning of the school year in which the examination is required. 

Commissioner's Regulation 135.4 Requires all student athletes who will participate in the interscholastic sports program to have a physical examination prior to practicing with any team. Although final approval is the legal responsibility of the school physician, examination by the family physician is recommended. The results of the physical examination will be valid for a period of 12 months before the first day of practice. 

Public Health Law, Section 2164 Requires all pupils to be immunized against Polio, Diphtheria, Mumps, Rubeola, Rubella, and Hepatitis B. Varicella vaccine or proof of immunity is required. Serologic proof (a blood titer) of immunity to Varicella or a history of Varicella disease as documented by a health care provider are the only acceptable proof of immunity. All students entering 6th grade are required to receive a booster immunization of Tdap (a Tetanus booster that contains Pertussis vaccine). The law recognizes certain religious and health exemptions. Required immunizations need to be updated for school records. Please include all recent booster dates.
