Dear 5th & 6th Grade Parents,
As part of our ongoing Health Program, and to comply with State Law, all fifth and sixth grade students are screened for Scoliosis each year.
The screening takes place during the students’ regular physical education class and is conducted by the school nurse. Girls are asked to wear a bathing suit top or halter-top that will enable us to view the spine as much as possible. The boys are asked to remove their shirts. Girls and boys are screened separately. The screening will take place the week of December 11th.
All students are expected to participate in this program. If you would like to excuse your child from this screening we must have a letter on file prior to the day of screening.
If you have any questions, please call the Health Office.
