The Pennsylvania Department of Health mandates health screenings for all students in grades K - 12.
Dental Screening: Grades K, 3, 7 and new students
Hearing: Grades K, 1, 2, 3, 7, 11, and new students
Height and Weight: All grades
Vision: All grades
Color Vision: First grade
Stereo/Depth Perception: First grade
Physical Exams: Grades K, 6, 11 and new students who were not examined in the appropriate lower grade
Scoliosis: Grades 6th and 7th
*Scoliosis is a lateral curvature of the spin. The screening is done by the school nurse for all 6th and 7th graders without a physical or PIAA sports examination. The screening is done privately and the child is required to remove the shirt.
Visual problems, hearing problems, and growth and development discrepancies can and do affect the educational, social and emotional development of children. Early detection of these concerns helps to assure a student of the best possible education experience. A referral notice for professional evaluation will be mailed or emailed home if a problem is noted during any screening.
The Pennsylvania School Health Law requires a physical examination for all kindergarten, 6th grade, 11th grade students and new students. It is recommended that the examination be completed by your personal provider. An exam performed 12 months prior to the start of school and any time during the school year is acceptable. Please return the Private Physical Exam Form to the school nurse. This form is available on this web site or in the nursing office.
Physical exams are offered at school each spring. This exam at school is a screening done by the school provider. A referral for further professional evaluation will be made if a health problem is noted. There is no charge for the examination and parents may be present. The exam is done in the health room, and the school nurse is present.
Sports physicals are required for participation in any school sponsored sport.
