PRE-PARTICIPATION CLEARANCES FOR VARSITY ATHLETES
All varsity athletes must undergo a review by the Student Health Service (SHS) to be cleared to participate in varsity athletics. Data for review includes: SHS Health Report Form completed by the student's primary care provider, a detailed medical history completed online through the athletic department and an on campus physical screening by SHS staff prior to each school year.
STUDENT TEACHING CLEARANCES
Students must be cleared by Student Health Service prior to receiving their student teaching assignments. The Student Teaching Office sends SHS a list of student teaching candidates each semester. Students on these lists are notified by SHS months in advance of the steps they need to take to complete the process and be cleared medically for student teaching. These steps include the gathering of information that is missing from their Student Health Center record (Health Report completed by their primary care provider and necessary immunization information). Interim health information and documentation of NYS required Tuberculosis Skin Test are also required. Once adequate information is received SHS notifies the Student Teaching Office of the candidate's clearance.
