NYS Requirements

New York State Changes Immunization Exemption Rules: June 13, 2019

On June 13, 2019, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed legislation removing non-medical exemptions from school vaccination requirements for children. By eliminating this exemption, state officials hope to address the worst measles outbreak in more than 25 years.

Parent Notification of NYS Law Requiring Attestation for Independent Carry and Use Of Emergency Medications 

New York State law, Article 19, now allows students with respiratory conditions, allergies, and/or diabetes the right to independently carry and use their inhaled respiratory rescue medications; epinephrine auto-injectors; and insulin, glucagon, and related diabetes supplies if the following is provided to the school:

Written permission from the parent/guardian; and written provider order with an attestation stating both the diagnosis, and that the student has demonstrated they can effectively administer the medication(s).

Independent carry and use of medications means that your child will take their own medicine without any help. The school will not know if your child takes his/her medicine. If you want your child to independently carry and use a medication listed above during the school day or at school sponsored events, you will need to ask their health care provider to put in writing (attest), that they have watched your child use the medication correctly. We may ask you to have your provider write another order with the required information if it is not on the medication order you bring to school.


If your child has signed up for a sport:

the student must have a current (within the last 12 months) physical exam on file in the nurse’s office, prior to the first practice.  This physical must be completed by a NYS physician, physician’s assistant or a nurse practitioner.

A pre-participation/interval athletic form is also required unless a physical exam was done within 30 days of the start of the sport season.  You may download and print the form below:
