All student medical records are processed directly through Magnus Health. Students may not attend classes or participate in any activities without having their yearly medical forms and updated immunization record submitted in Magnus. There are no exceptions.
**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.

If school is closed or delayed due to weather or a city-wide emergency, a note is posted on bayridgeprep.org and the school's social media pages. The information is also sent via text message and e-mail to the school community and WABC-TV/Ch. 7 carries the announcement on television. Weather-related notifications are sent out by 6 a.m. on the day in question.
Bay Ridge Prep will always close school if the NYC Dept. of Education closes public schools. On some occasions, Bay Ridge Prep will close school before the DOE comes to a decision or even if the DOE keeps public schools open. This usually occurs if it is determined that an impending weather event or another emergency will make conditions inside or near the school unsafe.
