Hope this letter finds each of you and your families enjoyed the Christmas break!
We are writing to let you know the 2016-2017 Chadron Public Schools Health Screenings will be held on January 18 and 19, 2017. January 18th will be 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades and January 19th will be 6th, 7th, 10th and 11th grades. These are routine school days so we will be pulling your child’s class for a short time to complete a vision screening (provided by Lions Club), a hearing screening (provided by Lions Club), dental screening (provided by CAPWIN dental) and Blood Pressure, Height, Weight and BMI (body mass index) screenings. 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!
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 provider (hgt, wgt, BMI and BP), from your private eye doctor the results of a vision screening, from your private dentist the results of a dental screening and from your private hearing specialist the results of a hearing screening by March 1, 2017.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
Your School Nurses
