Reminder: Freshman Postural Screening Program This Week

Parents/Guardians of Students in Grade 9, the Postural Screening Program will be take place January 4 – 8, 2015.

Massachusetts General Laws (M.G.L. c.71, s.57) require that all public school students in grades five through nine be screened annually for the early detection of spinal problems. This is not a diagnostic service but a screening program to identify children who should have further medical evaluation.

If you choose not to have your child participate in the Postural Screening Program, please notify the school nurse, Gail Kramer, R.N. and submit documentation of postural screening by your child’s health care provider.
