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 through the online registration process.  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.  The Lion's Club will screen for vision in grades PreK & K.


Dates for 2021-2022 Screenings in attached PDF.


If you do not want your child screened and overlooked the form during the registration process, please email Jenna Stitzel: [email protected]
