A letter will be sent home if there are any findings on the screening done at school that would cause concern or need follow—up. Please call the Health Office if you have any questions or concerns @ 3632120.

WEIGHT STATUS CATEGORY REPORTING

Our school district was selected to report Student Weight Status Category information for the 20172018 school year. Each student's health examination form is required to include Body Mass Index (BMI) and determination of weight status. This information will be submitted for students who were in grades K, 2, 4, 7 and 10 during the 2017-2018 school year, Only summary information is sent. No names and no information about individual students are sent. However, you may choose to have your child's information excluded from this survey report. If you do not wish to have your child's weight status information included as part of the Health Department's survey report, please contact the health office @ 363-2120. Mrs. S. Becker RN/School Nurse
