Affordable Care Act
The federal Affordable Care Act requires everyone to obtain health insurance. If you or your staff receive questions from families about health insurance enrollment, please direct families to explore health insurance options here and apply online using the NY State of Health website. Note that students and their families who qualify for Medicaid, Child Health Plus, or the Essential Plan can enroll online all year long, but should do so as soon as possible to avoid paying a penalty. Students and their families who do not qualify for Medicaid, Child Health Plus, or the Essential Plan may enroll online in private health insurance plans during the next open-enrollment period, which runs from November 1, 2016, through January 31, 2017. Families may also be able to enroll in private health insurance outside of the open-enrollment period if they experience a qualifying event, such as job loss or the birth of a child. You can distribute this letter to parents who inquire about health insurance enrollment policies.

Changes to Immunization Requirements for the 2016-17 School Year
All schools
 
As required by state law, you are responsible for ensuring that students are fully vaccinated against specific preventable diseases in order to attend school. You should work with your staff to ensure that all new students provide proof of immunization upon enrollment and to ensure that returning students provide proof of immunization, if they are entering a grade affected by a new vaccine requirement. You should especially focus on ensuring that students who are listed as “excludable” (i.e., not in compliance with immunization requirements) on the RHIL report in ATS provide proof of immunization.
 
In addition, please note the following changes to immunization requirements for the 2016–17 school year: 
 
  • Two doses of the chicken pox (varicella) vaccine are now required for all students entering grades K-2 and grades 6-8.
  • Three to five doses of the polio (IPV/OPV) vaccine are now required for all students entering grades K-2 and grades 6-8. 
  • All students in grades 7 and 12, and District 75 students who are 12-years-old, and 16- to 17-years-old will be required to have the Meningococcal Quadrivalent Vaccine, MenACWY, previously known as MCV4 (brand names Menactra and Menveo). Students entering grade 7 must have received one dose of MenACWY, and students entering grade 12 must have received two doses of MenACWY, unless their first dose was administered at 16 years of age or older. If the student’s first MenACWY was administered at 16 years of age or older, then only one dose will be required. A third dose of MenACWY will be required for entry into grade 12, if the second dose of MenACWY was administered before a student turned 16-years-old.

Programming & Class Equalization
Midwood High School is a term school.
Students receive programs at the beginning of each term.
Programming any school, but especially one as large as Midwood High School, is a challenging task and typically results in the need for program changes.
The need for changes can include errors, oversights, and most importantly the need to equalize class sizes according to union rules.
By union contract all schools have the first ten {10} days of school each term to finalize the equalization process.
Unfortunately this process often leads to students receiving program changes that they did not request.
While we recognize the initial disruption that this causes to students, it is necessary and part of the mandatory process.
It is important that parents and students understand that these changes may occur randomly for any students during the first 10 days of the semester.
We ask for your patience and understanding during this process.
Midwood High School's programming office cannot accommodate individual students personal programming needs (i.e., before/after school responsibilities,employment.)
Each term parents and students {at each grade level} must assume that their school can start as early as 1st period {7:15A.M.} and end as late as 10th period {3:30P.M.}.
