Health Screenings

Every student in Texas is required to have vision – hearing – spinal -acanthosis nigricans screening during their elementary and secondary school education. This includes all students new to FWISD.

Students in the 7th grade at BMHS will be required to have these screenings completed. In addition, 8th grade boys- will have spinal screening conducted.

Care will be taken to ensure social distancing and sanitizing headphones between students.

Separate letters are attached for information for students that will have the spinal screening and/or acanthosis nigricans screening completed.

We will begin screening the month of October. Please make sure your child is wearing their glasses or contacts to school.

If your child fails any of the screenings, you will be notified.
