All students in the 10th grade will be offered a health
screening, unless they have already received a physical exam
required for participating in high school sports. The following
assessments are conducted: height, weight, blood pressure,
vision and hearing. If a more thorough examination is
necessary, the parent or guardian will receive a referral form.
Students in 9th and 11th
grades will be screened for scoliosis [curvature of the back] as
mandated by the state. These screenings are typically conducted
during the studentís physical education class.
