• Effective July 1, 2018 – New York State Education Law requires new entrants to the Wappingers Central School District and each student in grades Kindergarten, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11 to have a physical examination on file. 

    Also mandated by New York State are health screenings. If your doctor completes any of the state-mandated screenings on the physical exam form, then they will not be repeated at school.

    Effective January 1, 2021 - all physical exams for public school students must be documented on the NYS Required Health Examination form. A "Visit Summary" is not a physical exam and will not be counted as one for the school year.  A copy of this form is located on the bottom of the page for your convenience. 

    **Please Note: All physical exams must be completed on the NYS form. If a physical exam is not completed on the appropriate form, then the WCSD Medical director or one of his associates  must repeat a physical at a later date. **

    A Dental Health Certificate is recommended to be on file for 9th and 11th grade. However, it is not mandated to be on file.
