Health Services for Southampton Intermediate School
Welcome to Ashley Kelley's Health Office
If your child is sick, please call 631-591-4712 to notify the health office for attendance purposes. Please send in any associated doctor's notes upon return to school.
- NYS mandates that all 5th grade students have an updated yearly physical on file. It is also recommended all 5th grade students receive a dental exam.
- NYS mandates that all 6th grade students have a TDAP vaccine as well as a second dose of the varicella vaccine. Please provide an updated copy of proof of these immunizations for our student records.
- NYS mandates all 7th grade students to have a meningococcal vaccine as well as an updated yearly physical on file. It is also recommended all 7th grade students receive a dental exam.
- All 7th and 8th grade students planning on playing a school sport must have a valid updated yearly physical on file. All sections of Final Forms must be completed and signed before any student attends tryouts. The same rules apply for each sports season.
Vision and Hearing Screenings are done throughout the year for all 5th and 7th grade students and new students. Parents will be notified of any impaired results for follow up care if needed.
NYS requires all new students and transfer students to have an updated physical on file within 30 days of enrollment. Please be sure this is on file in the Nurse’s office as well as a copy of all current immunizations.
In the unfortunate event that your child suffers an injury during a sport or while in gym, please review the following protocol. All students must report the injury to their teacher or coach as soon as it occurs. If this warrants further medical evaluation from the emergency room or private M.D., please be sure to provide a note to the health office. This will state the specific injury and limit or restrict further activity to allow for healing time. A follow up clearance note will be necessary to return to gym or other sport activities. A child will not be able to participate without written documentation of clearance. Thank you for your cooperation and attention to assure the health and safety of your child.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Thank you and have a great year!
