Student Medical information

Medical Policies & Forms

We require students to complete a comprehensive medical form which includes clearances for participation in physical education and athletic activities as well as an immunization history.  Please note that we only accept the Bay Ridge Prep-issued medical forms. All students must also enclose a copy of their most recent dental screening with their physical exam form.  More information is available in your child's Magnus Health account, which can be accessed by logging in to your portal.

**As of June 13, 2019, New York State no longer allows religious exemptions for vaccinations in public, private or parochial schools. The new law does not impact those students with a medical exemption. Please refer to this attachment from the Department of Health for additional information regarding the new law, the catch-up immunization schedule and answers to frequently asked questions about this law.

Student Illness Policy:

  • Any student complaining of illness during the school day will be evaluated by the school's medical office and a parent/guardian will be informed.
  • Any student who has a fever (temperature of 100.3 ºF or over), nausea or vomiting will be sent home.
  • Any student who exhibits signs or symptoms of a communicable disease will be sent home.
  • Any student who is unable to participate in school activities due to illness will be sent home.

Students must be free from fever, nausea, and vomiting for a minimum of 24 hours prior to returning to school. This assumes 24 hours without any fever reduction medicines. If a student returns to school the day after being sent home with a fever, he/she will not be permitted to attend and will be sent home.  While we understand that a child’s illness can be extremely inconvenient since many families do not have a stay-at-home parent, every parent must understand that one sick child can cause many other student and faculty illnesses. It is very important that every family have a plan in place for child care in case a student cannot attend school.

Our primary concern is always for the health of our students and we feel that as a community we can decrease the risk to all of our students and staff by following the illness policies. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact Stacy Betro in our medical office at 718-833-9090 or via e-mail at
