Postural Screenings Upcoming
Dear Parents/Guardians of Freshman Students,
Groton Dunstable Regional High School will conduct state-mandated postural screenings beginning in March and continuing through the end of the school year for Freshman students. This program is intended as a supplement to your child’s primary health care. The purpose of postural screening is to detect signs of spinal curvature at the earliest stages to prevent its progression. Postural screenings are performed annually in grades 5 through 9, the time of the most rapid growth and when signs of spinal curvatures typically appear.
The school nurses will conduct these screenings. Boys and girls will be screened separately and privacy will be maintained at all times. The screening is a simple 30 second observation of the back with the shirt/top removed. If your child has any unusual findings, you will receive a letter recommending further evaluation by your child’s physician.
If you DO NOT want your child to participate in the postural screening, or if your child is being monitored by your healthcare provider please make the request to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 15, 2019.
Please call the school nurses, Cheryl Shea or Leah Caruso at 978-448-6362 ext. 1018 if you have any questions.
