SCHOOL PHYSICAL FORM
New York State Education Law requires all students entering grades PreK - Kindergarten, one, three, five, seven, nine and eleven, as well as all new entrants to the district, have a physical examination.SPORTS PHYSICALS SHOULD BE PERFORMED ON OR AFTER JUNE 1ST to be considered valid for the upcoming school year and are required each year a child desires to participate in sports.
Please click on the link below to download the ESMCSD School Physical Form. All physicals should be done on the ESMCSD form. Other forms may not be accepted as they frequently do not include required information.
*The same form is now used for both Regular School Physicals as well as Sports Physicals.
Exclusion from BMI Reporting
As part of a required school health examination, a student is weighed and his/her height is measured. These numbers are used to figure out the student’s body mass index or “BMI”. The BMI helps the doctor or nurse know if the student’s weight is in a healthy range or is too high or too low. Recent changes to the New York State Education Law require that BMI and weight status group be included as part of the student’s school health examination. A sample of school districts will be selected to take part in a survey by the New York State Department of Health. If our school is selected to be part of the survey, we will be reporting to New York State Department of Health information about our students’ weight status groups. Only summary information is sent. No names and no information about individual students are sent. However, you may choose to have your child’s information excluded from this survey report.
If you would like your child's information excluded from the report, please download the form from the link below and return it to the school nurse in your building.
