6th Grade BMI & Scoliosis screenings

6th grade boys AND girls:

State law requires we do a BMI screening on students which is comprised of measuring a student's weight & height. We will do this on January 9th. Results are reported anonymously to the state and data is collected and aggregated by school, district, & state.

6th grade girls:

State law also requires that we conduct a scoliosis screening on all of our female 6th grade students. We do this in the gym locker rooms and girls are screened individually behind a curtain with a female nurse. Nurses will look at their backs. Girls are welcome to wear a swimsuit top or anything that will allow the nurse to see her back. We will conduct this screening on January 9th as well. If there are concerns, our school nurse (Amy Coile) will call the student back after the 9th and do a more in-depth screening in the nurse's office. If you want to opt out of this screening, please write a note and have your child deliver it to the nurse BEFORE January 9th. Results of this screening will be reported to parents IF there is a concern.
