A Public Health Advisor, Esther Newton, is on staff. She is located in room 105, the medical room, which is open during school days from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm.

The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene has issued School Admission Immunization Requirements.  The law requires that all new students—children entering day care, nursery school, pre-school or pre-kindergarten, and kindergarten through grade 12 in New York City for the first time—must show proof of having received a complete medical evaluation.
