At this time NYS requires that all incoming 6th graders receive the Tdap vaccination and incoming 7th graders receive the meningococcal vaccine. These need to be received prior to 14 days from the start of the school year.


A physical exam once during the school year qualifies a student to participate in the entire year of sports.  Students may present a physical exam report from their private physician or have a sports physical done at school free of charge.

New Concussion Policy: As of July 1, 2012, any student athlete or student injured during Physical Education class or during recess who appears to have the possibility of a concussion must be removed from play until they are symptom-free for 24 hours AND have been examined and cleared by a physician.  This is New York State law.

7th & 8th grade students may participate in modified interscholastic sports. Sign up forms will be made available online on as each season opens. All students wishing to participate will be required to have an up to date physical on file that is dated within a year of the start of the sports season. Physical dates will be made throughout the year with the school physician free of charge.


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. 

With the continuing prevalence of COVID 19 cases please continue to monitor for COVID symptoms such as fever, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, congestion, cough and chills. If these symptoms occur please keep your child home and complete an at home COVID test as a precaution. Please call the health office at 315-484-1413 for the most up to date COVID guidelines if you have any questions.



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 5 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 5th & 7th grade students. 


As a reminder, any medications, prescription or over the counter, require an order by a doctor, parent permission form and for the medication to be dropped off by an adult. The medication authorization form was included in your welcome packets that were mailed home at the end of the last school year. If you need a new form they can be mailed home upon request or sent home with your student. No medications will be given without a doctor’s order, no exceptions. 

Please call me at 484-1413 if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's health. Have a safe and healthy year.
