School Health Screenings

As a part of the Coordinated School Health program, a health screening which includes vision, hearing, blood pressure and body mass index is conducted annually on students in Kindergarten, 2nd, 4th, 6th, and 8th grade, as well as lifetime wellness classes in high schools.

Data does not include any identifying information.  All information is private and confidential. These screenings do not qualify as an examination and parents are encouraged to make sure your child has annual medical check-ups.  Following the screening, you will be notified if there is a need for further evaluation by a physician. 

If you missed this information in the student handbook and also on the Health History form, and you would NOT like your child to be screened, please send a note into the child’s homeroom teacher stating that you DO NOT want your child’s vision, hearing, blood pressure or body mass index screened. Please include your child’s name and date of birth on the note, as well as your signature and the date.
