Mengingococcal Vaccine is mandatory for all 7th and 12th grade students enrolled in schools in New York State.
New York State law requires parents/ guardians to give the school an immunization (shot) record that shows their child has received or has an appointment to receive the required vaccine (shot) in order to attend school. This record may be from a health care provider, health department, an official immunization record from the child's former school. The record must include:
- Name of the vaccine
- Date vaccine given
- Who gave it, along with their title; or where it was given if at a clinic
Please contact your health care provider as soon as possible to schedule an appointment for the vaccine in order to attend school this fall.
NCCS COVID-19 Guidelines for the 2022-23 school year:
If your child has symptoms of respiratory or gastrointestinal infections, such as cough, fever >100°F, nasal drainage, sore throat, vomiting or diarrhea, they should stay home. Students will be sent home if they develop these symptoms during the school day.
In order to return to school, your child will be required to have two negative COVID-19 antigen tests completed 24-48 hours apart & submit a Return to School Attestation Form, OR receive a negative PCR COVID-19 test, OR submit a note from their health care provider containing an alternate diagnosis that would explain their symptoms.
If your child tests positive for COVID-19, isolation may end after day 5 if they are fever free <100°F for 24 hours without the use of a fever-reducing medication, and their symptoms are improving. Your child may return to school, but should wear a well-fitting mask through day 10.
The CDC recommends all people with a known or suspected COVID-19 exposure, regardless of vaccination status or history of prior COVID-19 infection, wear a well-fitting mask for a full 10 day period and get tested at least 5 days after close contact or sooner if symptoms develop.
If your child has a history of chronic seasonal allergies, asthma, or migraines, and has symptoms that may resemble COVID-19, it is recommended that you consult with your child’s health care provider to discuss documentation of their usual symptoms. If documentation is on file and your child develops their “usual” symptoms associated with their chronic diagnosis, it may not be necessary for your child to miss school.
The Return to School Attestation Form is available on the Parent Square site and the link below
