Hello, and welcome back a new School Year. 
 
Help your child get a healthy start everyday with the beginning of a new school year. As your child's school nurse, we encourage student wellness through education on nutrition, good health habits, exercise, and proper sleep.  Look for more helpful tips at - Fresh New School Year.
 
Listed below are a few important reminders:
 
(1) Mandated Screenings Performed At School
 
During the school year, we will assess your child's height and weight, calculate their BMI, and screen their vision. In addition, a hearing screening will be given to all 7th graders.  A referral will be sent home if further evaluation is recommended for these screenings.
 
A scoliosis screening (an examination of the spine) will be given to 7th graders, and a referral will be sent home if further evaluation is recommended.
 
(2) Physical and Dental Exam Requirements
 
Physicals
 
According to Pennsylvania School Health laws, if your child is entering 6th grade or new to our school district he/she will need to have a physical exam completed.  The physical exam time is a perfect opportunity for discussion with your child's doctor about any additional immunizations they may need.  The exam should be completed and returned to our office by November 21, 2015.
 
To access the Physical Exam form please see our important forms and document section on our website.
 
Reminder: Students entering 7th grade are required to have meningitis (MCV), Tdap booster and two doses of the the chickenpox vaccine prior to the first day of school.  Please forward their updated immunization record to your school nurse.
