  • Dominic Murray Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Act

    Dear Parents and Guardians of Student Athletes,

    The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has recently adopted the Dominic Murray Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Act. This law requires schools, students and parents/guardians to have information on sudden cardiac arrest risks, signs and symptoms.

    In order for the Nyack Public School District to comply with this act, we have added NYSED’s Interval Health History for Athletic questionnaire to our online registration process.. This questionnaire is intended to gather required information regarding your child’s heart health and your family health history as to decrease any chance of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) in our students. We ask that you please read and fill out this detailed questionnaire very carefully.

    The Interval Health History for Athletics must be completed and signed by a parent/guardian before each sports season. School personnel may require a student with health or health history changes to see a healthcare provider before participating in athletics.

    As required by law, any student who has signs or symptoms of pending SCA must be removed from athletic activity until seen by a physician. The physician must provide written clearance to the school for the student to be able to return to athletics.

    Please note that sudden cardiac arrest in children and young adults is rare. Although it can be triggered in students at risk by athletic activities, the incidence of Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD) on the playing field is 0.61 in 100,000.

    Unfortunately, a number of personal risk factors may lead to a higher risk of occurrence — including the use of performance enhancing supplements, diet pills, energy drinks or recreational stimulant drugs such as cocaine or inhalants; high blood pressure/cholesterol or a personal history of heart issues.

    A family history of heart complications, syndromes or disease in any family member — immediate or extended — may also be a major risk factor.

    Signs or symptoms of SCA include fainting or seizures, especially while experiencing a heightened heart rate; irregular heartbeat, racing heart or heart palpitations; or chest pain, excessive shortness of breath, dizziness, lightheadedness or extreme fatigue all while during exercise.


    Please contact the NYSED Office of Student Support Services for questions at studentsupportservices@nysed.gov or 518-486-6090.

Welcome to Athletics, Health & Wellness

Health Education and Physical Education are essential for effective learning. The health education and physical education departments are committed to the vision of providing instruction that promotes and develops a healthy lifestyle. We believe in giving students a realistic chance of successfully managing the challenges of growing, learning and developing:

    -- By recognizing and fostering the fundamental value of wellness as an integrated school, parent and community approach for enhancing the health of our students.

    -- By enabling students to participate in a variety of lifetime activities to promote personal health, fitness and wellness.

     -- By empowering students to become active partners in their own development of health-enhancing skills, personal skills, intrapersonal skills, interpersonal skills and life skills.

The primary goal of the athletics department is to support the academic mission of the District. Our vision is to enrich the mental, physical and emotional well-being of all students by providing competitive opportunities in which the lifelong values of sportsmanship, individual effort, team work, integrity, character, civility, citizenship, and competence are emphasized.
