Annual Screenings

Screenings image

The nurse will conduct vision and hearing screenings annually for all students. Heights, weights and blood pressures will also be recorded for every child. Scoliosis screening will be performed on all students in the 5th grade as mandated by the state of New Jersey. Parents may opt out of the scoliosis screening if a note is sent in to the school nurse.

Parents/guardians will be notified in writing if a student fails his/her vision or hearing screenings with a referral to be completed by their pediatrician. It is important that all referrals be completed by the doctor and returned to the school nurse in order to update your child's medical record. Please contact the nurse at any time during the school year if you have concerns about your child and want an early or an additional screening.
