Welcome to the PRHS Health Office
The Role of the School Nurse
New York State law limits services of the school medical and dental staff to inspection and reporting. No treatments may be done at school. The nurse can only administer medication with parental permission and a doctor's prescription. The school nurse coordinates health services at PRHS, and is available to assist you in finding community agencies or specialists who can evaluate special problems which may be affecting your child.

Referral Services Available
In accordance with New York State regulations, student physical examinations are required for all students in grades K, 1,3, 5, 7, 9 and 11, as well as all new students.
NYS has updated their School Health Examination Form. When you take your child for their annual wellness check-up, please ensure that you and your pediatrician are completing and submitting this version of the form to the school nurse. Effective 1/31/21, NYS will no longer allow school districts to accept the previous version.
