Hope this letter finds each of you and your families off to a great school year!
We are writing to let you know that the required school health screenings will be held on November 12th and 13th. The schedule will be as follows:
November 12th morning- High School (10th - 11th grades)
November 12th afternoon - Intermediate School (3rd - 4th)
November 13th morning - Primary School (K - 2nd)
November 13th afternoon - Middle School (6th - 7th)
These are routine school days so we will be pulling your child’s class for a short time to complete a hearing, dental, vision and height, weight screening. A current physical is required for incoming Kindergarten and 7th grade students so they will not be participating in the height/weight portion. Incoming Kindergarten students are required to have a current vision exam, they will not be completing that portion at this time. Kindergarten hearing screenings were already completed. These screenings are not only a requirement by the State of Nebraska but also very important in early diagnosis of potential barriers in a student’s ability to learn and grow! vc
CAPWN Dental will also be completing dental screenings and/or treatments for ALL grades who’s permission slips (sent home the beginning of the year) were filled out and returned.
If you do not want your child/ren to participate in the free screenings, you will need to come to the school and sign a waiver. Due to the screenings being a state requirement, we will need you to provide the school with documented results from your private providers for each area of screening by December 1, 2019.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
Your School Nurses,
