SUBJECT: Reminders from SFP Medical Office (10/19/2021)

New FAX NUMBER to the Medical Office is 347-823-2380.
EMAIL- [email protected]

1. If your child is fully vaccinated, please submit a copy of his or her vaccination card to [email protected] We will put the card on his or her record.

2. If your child gets a COVID TEST, the student must remain HOME until the results are received and submitted to SFP Medical. If you take your child for a test, please contact the Medical Office for further instructions.

3. Please remind your child to wash his or her hands frequently and to wear the mask fully covering the nose and mouth.

4. Notification of anyone having close contact to a confirmed COVID-positive person will be by phone to parents or guardians whenever possible. If we learn of this exposure after school hours or when school is not in session, we will communicate via email about the need to quarantine in such cases.

5. If your child is absent from school, we trust you will monitor if he or she is ill and make the determination to get tested if symptoms are associated with COVID: fever, sore throat, diarrhea, cough. You can discuss symptoms with your doctor. Once again, when your child gets a COVID PCR test, you must inform the Medical Office. Have your child stay home until you have the results.

6. Students must wear their masks at all times (except when eating), both during the school day and in afterschool programs.

7. If your child anticipates trying out for sports, please submit his or her completed SPORTS PHYSICAL form to the Medical Office at least 3 weeks prior to try-outs. Having the form in early will ensure clearance. If needed, further details can be obtained before try-outs begin.

8. Any student with any injury must have a medical note for clearance to return to school.

9. If your child's medical status (not COVID-related) should change since you submitted his or her annual physical exam or sports form, please provide the Medical Office with the update. Thank you for your continued support with these important protocols.

Sincerely, Mary Pappas, RN

Incoming Students

Incoming freshman students and transfering students will receive their medical paperwork from the Administration Portal Checklist. All medical forms and information will be on that portal.

For student athletes: Medical exams need to be dated on or after June 1ST and handed in before tryouts. Please allow ample time for Nurse’s clearance.

Injury/Illness

Any student who is injured and will need accomodations at school must get a medical evaluation, and obtain a note from the doctor before returning to school.  This note must be presented to the school nurse upon return to school, before going to any classes.   (This medical note must contain injury, special needs and permission to return to school).

Any student injured unrelated to school activities, or has been absent due to surgery or chronic illness, must also follow the procedure explained above.

All student surgeries and medical illnesses (including over vacations) must be reported to the nurse upon return to school for proper follow up.

The School Nurse has the sole discretion to deny a student from returning to school/classes if full clearance from a medical doctor is not presented.

All students must arrive to school by 1:15 to in order to be involved in any after school activities- clubs, plays, sports. (exceptions- documented funerals, college visits)
