IMMUNIZATIONS

Students in grades 9-12 are required to have a certain number of doses of a variety of immunizations on file in the health office to attend school.
The vaccine types and doses vary according to grade.

Immunization requirements

One exemption is allowed at this time:

Medical exemption- the student’s medical provider must verify, each year, what vaccines they are exempt from, and why they should be considered exempt from this vaccine(s).

In the event that there is an outbreak of a vaccine-preventable illness in your child’s school, your child will be required to remain out of school, for their health, until 14 days after the last reported case.

Immunizations may be given by their primary medical provider or the Broome County Health Department (607-778-2839
)

PHYSICAL EDUCATION


Students are required to participate in physical education. If your child has a medical condition, injury, or illness preventing them from participation, an excuse from their medical provider is required.
If a long-term or permanent modification is needed, the provider should complete the physical education medical form.
The school health office may only excuse a student from physical education for one (1) day without a physician’s order.

ILLNESS

Fever- if your child has had a fever, they should remain home from school until they have been fever-free for 24 hours- without medication. This allows for the possibility of the return of the fever and gives the body time to rest and repair before returning to school, and possible exposure to other illnesses in a weakened state.

Vomiting/diarrhea- any child that has either of these in the evening or early morning, should not come to school that morning. If there is an underlying medical condition that is the cause of either of these problems, please contact your school’s health office.


DIET RESTRICTIONS

The Diet Prescription for Meals at School Form is used for students with special dietary needs involving school food service. Without this form fully completed by a licensed Health Care Provider, a dietary request for a student may not be fulfilled. If the form is not returned, the allergy is not listed on the foodservice computer and the cafeteria staff will not be alerted to the allergy when the student comes through the cafeteria line. This could lead to unnecessary exposure to an allergen.

After the form is completed by the Health Care Provider and returned to the school, the order does not need to be renewed on a yearly basis unless there are changes to the student’s diet. Once the school receives the request, it will forward the diet prescription to the BOCES dietitian. If you have questions regarding the form, please call your child's school or call BOCES, at 607-766-3937, or email: jraway@btboces.org (Julie Raway, MPH, RDN, CND, SNS
