School Health Screenings
                     Vision and hearing screens                         scale             

The school nurse will be conducting state mandated vision screenings throughout the year for students in preschool through fifth grade, hearing screenings for students in preschool through third grade, and postural screenings for fifth and sixth graders. You will be notified only if there is any concern about your child’s results, in which case a referral to a specialist will be suggested.
Body Mass Index (BMI) screenings will also be completed for students in grades one and four. The results of this screen will be send to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health as a combined number. Individual BMI results are always kept private.
