Dear Parents/Guardians:

Hope this letter finds each of you and your families off to a great school year!

We are writing to let you know that the required school health screenings will be held on November 3rd and 4th.  The schedule will be as follows:

November 3rd morning- High School (10th - 11th grades) 

November 3rd afternoon - Intermediate School (3rd - 4th)

November 4th morning - Primary School (K - 2nd)

November 4th afternoon - Middle School (6th - 7th)

These are routine school days so we will be pulling your child’s class for a short time to complete a hearing, dental, vision and height, weight screening.  A current physical is required for incoming Kindergarten and 7th grade students so they will not be participating in the height/weight portion.  Incoming Kindergarten students are required to have a current vision exam, they will not be completing that portion at this time.  Kindergarten hearing screenings have already been completed.  These screenings are not only a requirement by the State of Nebraska but also very important in early diagnosis of potential barriers in a student’s ability to learn and grow!                  

CAPWN Dental will also be completing dental screenings and/or treatments for ALL grades who’s permission slips (sent home the beginning of the year) were filled out and returned.

If you do not want your child/ren to participate in the free screenings, you will need to come to the school and sign a waiver.  Due to the screenings being a state requirement, we will need you to provide the school with documented results from your private providers for each area of screening, completed within the last 6 months,  by December 1, 2020.  

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Your School Nurse
