The nurse will be performing spinal screenings on Friday, March 24th. Please remind your student to bring shorts, and remind girls to wear a two- piece swimsuit top, halter top, or sports bra. If you do not want your child screened , you are required to fill out the Spinal Screen Exemption form and return it to the nurse. Please contact the school nurse for any questions regarding this required screening.

Challenges are a good thing. They make us stronger.

Never settle for anything less than your best.
