NEWS FROM THE HEALTH ROOM
In keeping with the State of CT guidelines, each year your child receives a health screening at school. School based screening includes height, weight, and hearing checks. Children in 5th and 6th grade will also receive a blood pressure check and scoliosis check. If a child does not pass the initial screening, they will be re-tested at a later date. If results are consistently not within the recommended guidelines, we will send home a referral for your child to be examined by a physician. As in previous years, vision screening will be completed by using the Kids Sight program sponsored by the Lions Club of Danielson. The Spot Vision Screening Tool is also used at many pediatrician offices and gives a much more accurate eye screening.
Please send a note, email, or call the health room if you have any questions or concerns. Our screenings will begin in the fall and a note will go home with details as screenings get closer.
