From the Nurse:

Just a reminder that Postural Screening will begin  on:

Tuesday, May 1rst (Grade 6), Wed. May 2 (Grade 7) and Th, 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.
