Postural screenings will be conducted at TMS for every student starting the week of December 11, 2017 and will continue until complete.
The purpose of postural screening is threefold: (1) to detect early signs of spinal problems that should have further medical evaluation, (2) to provide regular monitoring, and (3) to reduce the need for surgical remedies. Screening must be done annually in grades 5-9 because of growth spurts and diverse rates of physical maturation. If your child’s doctor performs the screening at their well visit, please ask them to document their findings on their physical form.
Postural screening is required by Massachusetts General Law. Like other screening programs conducted in the schools, this program is not intended to provide medical diagnosis, but rather to detect possible early signs of spinal problems that should have further medical evaluation. If your child has any unusual findings, you will be notified and asked to take your child to their physician for medical evaluation.
Girls and boys are screened separately and total privacy is afforded each student.
If a parent/guardian refuses postural screening by the school, written documentation provided by the family physician must be submitted to the school nurse, including the date of the screening, results, and physician's name.
Please contact the Health Office at 978-649-3115 with any questions or concerns.
Family in Need
A member of Junior Girl Scout Troop 68085 in Tyngsboro lost their house, belongings and unfortunately, their family dog in the fire last week. We would like to help them get back on their feet and take away some of the burden by holding a gift card drive. Please send any restaurant, Walmart, Target, etc. gift cards in to any of the schools in an envelope labeled “Gift Card Donation Drive” any day this week. The Girl Scout is 11 years old and she has a sister who is 16 so clothing gift cards for them are also appreciated. We thank you for your generosity in helping one of our sister scouts.
