The nursing staff will complete the annual health screenings for grades K-5th, 7th, and 10th. All students are screened for vision, height and weight. The health screening is voluntary. If you do not want your child to participate, please send a signed, dated note with your child to school before the screening. Please note that all students with an IEP, or those receiving special services through school, must be screened.
If your child fails one or more of the tests, you will receive a letter stating the results of the screenings and that your child should be evaluated by your physician.
Completion of these referrals is very important for the health of your child. Please remember to take the referral with you to your child's appointment and return to the school nurse when completed.
If you do not have a physician, or if you have questions regarding insurance or MO HealthNet , please contact your school nurse or health tech for assistance. Other financial or transportation assistance may be available.
