Scoliosis Screening: Postural screening, as required by Nevada State Law, will be conducted by school nurses in your child’s school on April 21, 2023; this screening is only for 6th grade girls and 8th grade boys.
The purpose of postural screening is to detect signs of abnormal spinal development so that the need for treatment can be determined. For this screening, boys and girls will be seen separately. Privacy will be maintained within the constraints of the school setting. Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine. Most cases of spinal curvature are mild, but may become progressively more severe as the child continues to grow. Early treatment can prevent the development of a severe deformity, which can later affect the health and appearance of the child.
You will be notified only if a possible abnormality is observed and follow-up is necessary. This screening does not replace your child’s need for regular health care and check-ups. If you do not want your child to have a postural screening at school, please notify the school nurse at email@example.com. Thank you.
Absence notes: Please be sure to submit absence notes within 3 days of your childs absence in order for it to be excused. CLICK HERE for attendance information.
