Please encourage healthy habits in your family to prevent illness. These include frequent handwashing with soap and water or alcohol-based sanitizers, covering coughs and sneezes, avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth, and staying home, away from others when you are ill.
New entrants, 5th and 7th graders will be screened for vision and hearing. Students in grades 5-8 are screened for scoliosis. Parents will be notified if a referral for further evaluation is needed.
Physicals are now required in grades 4 and 7 and for all new entrants to the Solvay District. This can be done by your private physician or Dr. Triana when he is here in December and March. The physical exam report must include BMI and weight status classification. School districts will also be requesting a dental certificate for 4th & 7th grade students.
A reminder about medication - all medications given at school require a doctor's order, parent permission and medication brought to school in original labelled container. This includes over the counter meds.
7th & 8th graders may participate in modified interscholastic sports. Sign up forms are available in the Health Office or attached below. All other health related forms can be found under "Parent Resources" on the District home page.
Please call me at 484-1413 if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's health. Have a safe and healthy year.
