Massachusetts Mandated Screenings
Hello from the Health Office,
We are preparing to begin our MA mandated screenings. Please let us know if you would prefer your child to opt-out of one or all of the screenings. We will provide dates for the spinal screenings.
All health screenings conducted in school are required by Massachusetts Law. Screenings are ongoing throughout the school year. Parents and legal guardians shall be provided with an opportunity to request, in writing, that their child not participate in the program. This request must be written each year and be specific to which screening you do not wish your child to participate.
Postural screening is conducted for all grades 5 – 9. Parents are notified of concerns and referred to their physician for follow-up.
Vision screening is conducted for all grades 1 – 5, 7 and 10. Parents are notified if the student does not pass for referral to their physician for follow-up.
Hearing screening is conducted for all grades K - 3, 7 and 10. Parents are notified if the student does not pass for referral to their physician for follow-up.
Growth Development Screening
Growth screening is conducted for students in grades 1, 4, 7 & 10. Heights and weights are measured and calculated into BMI or Body Mass Index.
