IMMUNIZATIONS: N.Y. State Education Law requires a signed and dated certificate of Immunization from a physician or health clinic to be on record for each student. It is crucial that each student’s immunization record is uploaded and submitted BEFORE the start of the school year. Students without an immunization record on file will be unable to attend school in September.
PHYSICAL EXAM: HALB ECC requires an exam performed and dated within the past one year is required for school entrance for each year. Exam forms should include most current height, weight and results of hearing and vision screenings performed.
ALLERGIES & ASTHMA: In addition to entering all information in the DDC parent portal, please alert your child’s teacher to food allergies or asthma as well. Asthma and Allergy Action plans are available to download on HALB’s website. Your physician’s forms are also acceptable and must be uploaded to the DDC parent portal.
CONTAGIOUS ILLNESS: Any child with a contagious illness must be excluded from school. Please notify the office of such illnesses as chicken pox, strep throat, lice, flu, mononucleosis, and any other non-contagious significant illness. Your child must stay home from school for a minimum of 24 hours after being sent home from school and must not return to school until fever, vomiting and/or diarrhea has not occurred within the last 24 hours before returning to school. In the case of fever, your child should not have fever for 24 hours before returning to school WITHOUT HAVING USED any Tylenol, Motrin, Advil or other fever reducing medicine. In other words, if you gave your child fever reducing medicine the day before or the morning of returning to school, your child is not ready to return to school.
