2020-2021 Immunization Requirements
MEDICATION --- New York State Law requires that:
- New medication forms for both prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) medications must be signed by the provider and parent annually.
- Orders are good for the entire school year.
- The parent must sign the medication permission form.
- Medication must remain in the properly labeled pharmacy or original OTC container.
- Parents or guardians must personally deliver and pick up all medication at the school health office (unless a self-carry order form is signed by parent and physician).
- If your child’s provider has determined that your child may self-carry and self-administer their medication, please have your healthcare provider complete the appropriate medication form which requires provider consent. Parent signature is also required. ***This option is for Middle and High School students only. ***
- It would be appreciated if all medication and forms be brought in the day before school starts, especially for daily meds.
Just a reminder-
Any student who had a medical excuse from gym due to an injury, must submit a Doctor's note to clear the student. This will allow the student to participate in gym or sports during the upcoming year. The Doctor can fax the clearance to 262-6601 or the clearance can be brought into the Nurse's office. If you have any questions, feel free to call the nurse, Denise Fiorito, at (631) 262-6755.
If your child is not feeling well-
Please check your child's temperature if they are not feeling well. The CDC and the New York State Department of Health recommend that students and staff remain out of school for at least 24 hours after having a fever. Also note that students should be fever-free for 24hrs WITHOUT the use of fever- reducing medication such as Tylenol and Motrin. The teachers and staff here at NMS are working together to remind the students to wash their hands and to cover coughs and sneezes. Please report any diagnosed illnesses to me. Thank you for your cooperation in our attempt to keep our school a healthy, learning environment.
If you have any questions please call me at 262-6755.

New School Year Begins for Northport-East Northport School District
Students Return To Pulaski Road Elementary
The 2020-2021 school year at Northport-East Northport Union Free School District kicked off with happy students and eager parents. September 10th and 11th marked the first days for students returning to school under the district’s hybrid instructional model, with half the students beginning on Thursday and the remaining students starting on Friday. Students arrived and even through their masks, the excitement and joy of being reunited with friends and teachers was evident.
Upon arrival, students were immediately welcomed by teachers and school staff, who directed them to their classrooms and walked them through the new school protocols. From little ones showing off their first day outfits to 6th and 9th graders becoming acquainted with their new buildings, every student showed enthusiasm for the return.
“We’re incredibly proud of our students and their resilience as they head into this new year,” shared Superintendent of Schools Robert Banzer. “We know that things may look different, but the energy and excitement of first day is exactly the same.”.
