State mandated screening in grades 5-8 to begin soon
Published on Oct 23, 2017 13:26

Dear Middle School Parents,

 

Starting next week I will be begin state mandated screening for grades 5th - 8th. The screening will be held throughout the month of November. I will be starting with the 5th and 6th grade. The 5th grade will have postural screening for Scoliosis and Vision. The 6th & 8th grade will have postural screenings. The 7th grade will have vision, hearing, height, weight and postural screening.  I will be explaining to the 5th grade class what to expect when we do the postural screening. The students will be screened individually. I ask that all girls wear a tank top or sports bra the day they are due to be screened. This type of clothing allows more accurate observation of the back. I will be screening the 6th grade on 11/1 and the 5th grade on 11/2. Grades 7th and 8th will be later in the month.

 

The purpose of the postural (scoliosis) screening is to find early signs of possible spinal problems in children grades 5th-8th. If I have any concerns I will notify you. If your child has already been screened by your doctor and you wish to opt out of this or any other screening, please email me directly. If you have any questions, please contact me at 508 376-7009.

 

Thank you,

Lynn Molinari
