note from the nurse
The procedure for screening is simple. Screeners who have been specially trained will look at your child’s back while he/she stands and then bends forward. For this examination, boys and girls will be seen separately and individually.
ALL STUDENTS MUST REMOVE THEIR SHIRT FOR THIS EXAM. FOR THIS REASON, WE REQUEST THAT GIRLS WEAR A TANK TOP, TUBE TOP, SPORTS BRA OR A TWO PIECE SWIMSUIT TOP UNDERNEATH THEIR SHIRT DURING THE EXAM.
Parents will be notified of the result of the screen only if professional follow-up is necessary. This screening procedure does not replace your child’s need for regular health care and check-ups.
According to state law, all students in 6th grade must receive the spinal screenings. If, for religious reasons, you do not wish to have your child screened, you are to submit an affidavit of religious exemption to the school no later than March 23, 2015.
Please contact Amy Gordon, the school nurse, at 903-482-8878 if you would like additional information.
