Health and Athletic Forms

Physical and Immunization Information for ALL Students

As the school year comes to an end, it's time to schedule physical exams and update NYS immunization requirements for the 2018-2019 school year.

  • IMPORTANT: All NEW students and students in grades 5, 7, 9, and 11 are required to complete this form (provided by the Harrison School District) and provide an updated immunization record. Please remember to bring it with you to your child's physical. It is due back to the nurse's office by AUGUST 1.
  • Sixth graders require a Tdap vaccine.
  • Seventh and Twelfth graders require a meningococcal vaccine.

If you have any questions, please email nurse Gina Romeo or call ext. 217.

Health Information for Athletes

Fall Pre-Season for Upper School students begins on August 16, 2018.

Your daughter will need these forms that are required by the Harrison Central School District:

A Physical Exam that is less than one year old. So, if your daughter's exam was before August 16, 2017, she will need a new exam from her doctor to participate in Pre-Season.

An Interval Health History Form for Athletics that needs to be printed out, filled out, and signed by parents before August 16, 2018 for Pre-Season participation.

All medications needs to be brought into school before Pre-Season begins. There should be one set for the Nurse's Office and one set for the Athletic's Office. Medications can be left with Ms. Hajjar (Upper School), Ms. Koehler (Middle School) or Ms. Felter (Head's Office).

We would like Middle School athletes to submit all forms by August 16, but please no later than September 4. Students in grades 5 and 6 should write in the appropriate grade on the health history form.
