Our annual Health Screenings, which include Hearing, Vision, Scoliosis and Acanthosis Nigricans were conducted in November. These are state-mandated screenings and are required for the listed grades and all new students to the district. Students to be screen are those who are in KG, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, and 8th. If your child wears glasses, please make sure they are bringing them to school for the screening
If your child is a virtual student, please contact your school nurse to schedule a time to bring your child into school so that we can complete the required health screenings. If you prefer not to bring your child to school, the screening can be done by your child’s physician, proof of the screening must be provided to the school nurse. The form that will need to be filled out by the physician and can be found HERE (HEALTH SCREENING FORM). The form will need to be returned to the school on or before March 22nd, 2021. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
