Back to School

We are preparing for the 2015-2016 school year and we would like to share important information with you so you too can be ready for the upcoming school year.

Forms

All three forms must be filled out for new AND returning students.
  1. The Medical Form: This form must be filled out by your child’s doctor. It must be returned to EINY on the first day of school, no exceptions.

    Note:

    This year the NYS Department of Health (NYSDOH) has new requirements: The effective date of the new immunization regulations starts on 9/1/2015.

    The children’s vaccination has to be done this year, over the summer to meet the 09/1/2015 deadline.

    For additional information click here.

    If your child has any allergies, dietary restrictions, or any medical concerns that might require medication, please notify Nicole at nicole@einy.org before school starts.

  2. Please note, EINY is a peanut free community.
    We ask that no peanuts or tree nuts be brought into our school even if your child is not allergic, as we want to be certain that no child is accidentally exposed to a food to which s/he is allergic.
    We appreciate your cooperation in ensuring the safety and well-being of all our students.
  3. The Contact and Authorization form: This must be submitted no later than the 1st day of school also.
  4. Lunch program enrollment form: Please fill it out and return it to us as soon as possible so that we can have an accurate meal count. The lunch program begins on the 1st day of school.
