Medical Health Requirements for 2017-18 School Year

 Dear Parents,

As your child prepares for the fall term, it is a good time to tell you about our health program, how to upload your medical forms into our DDC Medical Module and information regarding the New York State Regulations.

IMMUNIZATIONS: N.Y. State Education Law requires a signed and dated certificate of Immunization from a physician or health clinic to be on record for each entering student.  It is crucial that each student’s immunization record is uploaded and submitted BEFORE the start of the school year. Students without an immunization record on file will be unable to attend school in September.

Any child without documentation of the required immunizations will be excluded from school until such documentation is received.

PHYSICAL EXAM: HALB ECC requires an exam performed and dated within the past one year is required for school entrance for each year. Exam forms should include most current height, weight and results of hearing and vision screenings performed.

ALLERGIES & ASTHMA: In addition to entering all information in the DDC parent portal, please alert your child’s teacher to food allergies or asthma as well. Asthma and Allergy Action plans are available to download on HALB’s website. Your physician’s forms are also acceptable and must be uploaded to the DDC parent portal.

CONTAGIOUS ILLNESS: Any child with a contagious illness must be excluded from school. Please notify the office of such illnesses as chicken pox, strep throat, lice, flu, mononucleosis, and any other non-contagious significant illness.

MEDICATION: No medication, including over-the-counter medications, can be given in school unless a medication permission form is filled out and signed by you and your doctor. Medication must be in a labeled prescription container. Tylenol and Advil can not be dispensed unless the Health Office has the student’s own personal bottle with their name on it!! All students requiring medications during school hours must inform the nurse.                      

EMERGENCY INFORMATION: Please make sure to include all necessary emergency contacts as well as physicians name and phone number. Every effort will be made to contact you in the event of an emergency.

Please submit all forms online using the DDC Medical Module. Log onto the DDC parent portal (https://ddc.halb.org/portal) with your username and password. It is the same one that you used for report cards and/or from your initial application process. (If you have forgotten your password click “forgot user name and password.” The password and username will be sent to you).

After logging in, click on My Account and then Medical Forms.

Complete all sections online. We will no longer accept paper forms. You must upload your completed forms onto this portal.
