Announcements and Events
Wednesday, April 3 - 10:35 AM dismissal for students
Attention 9th grade families: We will be doing 9th grade Postural Screening during your gym class the month of April. The purpose of this is to find early signs of possible spinal problems in children in grades 5-9. It is not a diagnostic service but a program to identify young people who should have further medical evaluation. If your child has any unusual findings, you will be notified and asked to take the child to a physician as a precaution. The majority of students exhibit no findings. If nothing unusual is found, we will not be contacting you. Female students should bring a sports bra to school for gym class to wear the day of the screening. This type of clothing permits more accurate observation of the back. Screenings will begin the week of April 8-12th. If you have any questions, please contact the nurse's office at (508) 416-2263.
