All 5th grade students must be screened by the school nurse for the presence of scoliosis. This screening will be repeated again in grade 7 and again in High School. A few days before the screening, you will be notified in writing and recommendations for appropriate apparel will be given at that time. The screening only takes a few minutes, and will be done by the nurse in the nurse's office. If you prefer your child not be screened at school, a note from the parents stating your objections must be sent to the school nurse prior to the screening date.
