School Health Screenings

Health screenings are conducted on all students in K, 2nd,4th,6th and 8th grades.  The screenings consist of height, weight, blood pressure, hearing and vision.  All parents can opt their child out of the screenings by NOT initialing the Parent Check List in the Student Handbook.  Once screenings are complete, all referrals will be mailed home to the parent.  This data will NOT remain in a student's permanent file.  Blood pressure is not taken on kindergarten students.  We partner with school nurses to complete scoliosis screenings on 6th grade students.  The Lion's Club will screen for vision in grades PreK & K.
