    Parents of In-coming Seniors 2018 NYS Immunization Requirements for MCV4

    All Seniors are required to have the Meningitis Vaccine (MCV4).  Vaccine documentation should be submitted by Sept. 1, 2018.   Seniors who have not met this requirement will be excluded from school until the appropriate documentation is received

    Please contact your child's healthcare provider and schedule an appointment for this mandated immunization.  The Rockland County Dept. of Health offers free vaccines by appointment only.  Call 845-364-2520 to schedule an appointment at their Pomona clinic.  Updated immunization records can be mailed (360 Christian Herald Rd.

  • FLU Prevention

    The best preventative measure against the flu in an annual vaccination for you, your children & your entire family.  The CDC recommends annual flu vaccines for everyone age 6 months and older, because the flu is a serious disease that can cause hospitalization and death, even in healthy individuals.  Please see the links below for more information:

  • HEALTH FORMS -QUICK ACCESS

    All forms that may be required for your child can be found here: Health Certificate, Medication, Dental, Asthma Plan, Allergy Plan & Vision Exam. 

    The Health Certificate (physical exam) can be replaced by your pediatrician's own form. Physicals are required for all new students, 10th graders, sport participation & working papers. 

    Medication administration in school requires a physician's order and parental permission.  If a medication is not included on our form, please have the MD write a prescription and attach it to the signed form.  All medications, submitted to the nurse for administration, must be in their original container and properly labeled.

    If your child has asthma or severe allergies to food, bees or exposure (i.e. Latex) please have the appropriate plan signed by your child's doctor, along with the medication administration form.

    If your child has a vision exam or dental exam during the year, please have the doctor or dentist complete the appropriate form at the time of the visit, this can be turned in at any time.

    All forms can be faxed to (845) 353-7147; emailed mdauria@nyackschools.org or mailed to Nyack High School 360 Christian Herald Rd. Upper Nyack NY 10960- Attention : School Nurse

    Nurse Notes
  • Does your child have asthma?

    Please be sure your child has their Asthma Action Plan, along with a prescription for their inhaler in the Nurse's Office.  Be sure the doctor allows for your child to self carry their inhaler & that it is in their backpack everyday.  The Asthma Plan is attached and can be printed for your MD to complete. The medication order form must be completed as well.

    Nurse Notes
  • Food & Bee Allergies

    If your child has a severe allergy and may require the administration of an Epipen, please have your child's doctor fill out the attached form and submit it to the nurses office as soon as possible.  HS students should self carry their own epipen once prescribed by the MD, but the order must be on file in the Nurse's Office.  This is especially important for those students who may be exposed after school hours or away from the school at a sporting event.  The medication order form must be completed as well.

    Nurse Notes
  • Medication and your child

    No medication can be carried in school by your child with the exception of an Epipen or asthma inhaler with a valid Doctor's Prescription.  Your child can however receive medication from the school nurse with a prescription from your child's MD.  If you would like to allow your child to take Tylenol or Ibuprofen in school for headaches or other ailments, please complete the top portion of the attached form.  Your physician must complete the bottom portion for the form for it to be a valid prescription. Return the form to the Nurse's Office by hand, email (mdauria@nyackschools.org) or fax (845-353-7147).  The form is good for one year from the date of the prescription.  Any other prescribed medication can be written on an MD prescription pad and attached to this form. Medications other than Tylenol, Ibuprofen & Benadryl, must be supplied to the Nurse in its original container with the child's name on it. 

    Nurse Notes
  • A Growing Concern for Teens: Hearing Loss

    Hearing loss creates challenges for individuals of all ages and is now a growing problem for our children.  Kids & teens who develop hearing loss are at risk academically if it is not diagnosed and treated appropriately.  A 2014 study suggested that 1 in 6 teens has been found to show hearing loss.  This is not surprising given the barrage of loud video games, music, concerts, sporting events and surround-sound environments that our children are exposed to at levels not previously seen. The use of earbuds is another contributing factor in teen hearing loss.

    Here at Nyack High School, your child's hearing is screened in 10th grade unless a hearing screening is documented on your pediatrician's health certificate (physical exam form).  However, if you suspect your child is having difficulty hearing at any time, contact us and we can screen your child to determine if follow-up is needed with a physician. The office number is 845-353-7140

    The Siemans Hearing Instrument company recommends the following to mitigate the risk of noise induced hearing loss:  Replace earbuds with headphones, use ear protection at loud venues (concerts, sporting events...) & try to sit in the middle of the room at a concert, club or movie theater.  If your child complains of ringing or buzzing in their ears, consult a hearing care professional.

     

    Nurse Notes
  • Vision Screening

    Optimal vision is essential to your child's success in school.  Screenings are done in 10th grade at the HS, but if your child has an eye care specialist, they should be examined at least every two years to ensure they have the best prescription for their glasses or contacts.  The attached form helps us to understand any vision recommendations from your child's eye doctor.  Please have the form completed when your have your child's eye exam and return it tho the Nurse's Office for their health record.

    Nurse Notes
  • Dental Form

    If your child has a scheduled appointment with his or her dentist, please print the attached form and have it completed at the appointment.  This form should be returned to the Nurse's Office for your child's health record.
