Staying Weather Aware

We are closely monitoring the weather conditions. If there are any changes to our schedule we will notify families via our IRIS (emergency notification) system, RenWeb and website.

Health Screenings

The state of Texas requires vision, hearing and spinal screenings of public and private school students each year. We are blessed to have the University of St. Thomas Peavy School of Nursing conduct these screenings for us here at Corpus Christi on this Friday, September 25th.


Remote learners may schedule a screening between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 noon. A link will be sent to register.


VISION/HEARING

Vision/hearing screening are conducted to detect vision or hearing abnormalities. Vision and Hearing screenings must be completed for any student who is 4 years old on September 1st, Kindergarten students, any student new to the school within 120 days of admission, and all 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th grade students.


ACANTHOSIS NIGRICANS

The Texas Risk Assessment for Type 2 Diabetes in Children is a legislatively-mandated program developed, coordinated, and administrated by the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley Border Health Office. The program assesses children who may be at high risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes. The Texas Risk Assessment for Type 2 Diabetes (Acanthosis Nigricans) must be done for all students in 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th grades any time within the school year.


SPINAL

Spinal Screening is to detect the signs of abnormal curves of the spine at their earliest stages so that the need for treatment can be determined. This screening procedure does not replace your child’s need for regular health care and checkups. According to state law, girls in grades 5 and 7 and boys in grade 8 must receive the spinal screening. The screen requires a shirt removal for this exam, for this reason we request that girls wear a sports bra underneath their shirt on exam day.


AGES & STAGES

The Ages & Stages is a screener that evaluates gross motor, fine motor, problem solving, and social development. The screener pinpoints developmental progress in PreK and Kindergarten children.
