Just a reminder that Postural Screening will begin on:
Tuesday, May 1st (Grade 6), Wed. May 2 (Grade 7) and Thur, May 3 (Grade 8)
Postural screening is an annual state-mandated screening and is required for all students Grade 5 – 9. The purpose of Postural Screening is to evaluate students for early spinal problems. It is not a diagnostic service but a program to identify students who should have further medical evaluation. The majority of children do not have spinal problems. Referrals will be sent to parent/guardian for those who do not pass screening. If your child has all ready been screened or is currently under treatment please send in a note from your Physician.
Postural screening is a simple brief observation of the child’s back while standing and bending forward. To allow for optimal viewing of the spine, female students are reminded to please wear a bathing suit or halter top under their clothing. Girls and boys will be screened separately and all students will be provided privacy during screening.
If you have any questions regarding Postural Screening, please contact
Amy Klausmeyer, School Nurse, at 508-886-0073.

When sending any notes to the office: please print your student's first and last name. Students and parents frequently have different last names and parent signatures are sometimes difficult to read. We want to avoid any confusion and be sure we know which student you are referring to.
Make up Homework: Homework requests are not done until a student has been absent for three days. Please request the homework when you call you child in sick on the morning of the third day. Many teachers post assignments on their websites, so it is a good idea to check there first whenever your child is absent.
