State Mandated Health Screenings

Height, weight, BMI* and vision are measured every year.

Hearing screening: Grades K- 3, 7, 11

Scoliosis screening: Grades 6 & 7

Dental exams required: Grades K, 3, 7  

Physical exams required: Grades K, 6, 11

Any problems noted in the screening programs are discussed with the parents and a referral is made to have further evaluation done by the appropriate professional.

Parents are encouraged to have their family health care providers, optometrists and dentists complete the required exams, and documentation of these exams must be given to the school nurse.

Body Mass Index (BMI) measurement is a part of the State’s initiative to address the growing problem of childhood obesity and the health risks associated with being overweight.  Parents will be notified of their child’s BMI electronically.

If you are opposed to your child participating in any of these screenings, please contact the building nurse.
