note from nurse cindy regarding 2021-2022 school year

 
 
Dear parents,
 
The NYC DOE and the Office of School Health work together each year to provide students with the services they need to fully participate in school.  Every school year new forms are needed to be completed by your physician.  If your child needs health services, medication, or accommodations please click on the link below to print the forms needed for your child.  Please have your MD complete the front of the form; parent signature required on the back of all forms; and send the forms to one of the appropriate addresses below.   Or you can EMAIL the forms to QueensMAF@schools.nyc.gov.  Please remember to keep a copy for your records.
 
Physical Exam Requirement :
If your child is remote and in kindergarten or you have not submitted an exam after their 5th birthday, or you have not submitted a physical exam after you have been notified from the School; please submit your child's physical exam form by the first day of school, September 13, 2021.
 
The NYC Public Health Code and the Dept. of Education Chancellor's Regulation require that ALL students entering kindergarten in a NYC public or private school must have a complete physical exam performed after the child's 5th birthday.
If you have any questions regarding what forms to print or what needs to be sent, please feel free to email me at Cciulla@schools.nyc.gov and I will be happy to assist you to help make the process easier.
 
Hoping everyone is well, safe, and healthy,
Nurse Cindy
