Updates from the Nurse’s office

Hello Tilton Upper Families,
Massachusetts students are required to have vision, growth and postural screenings in middle school. These will be completed in school within the next few months.Vision screening is done yearly in both 4th and 5th grade. Parents/guardians will be notified of any concerns that need a physician follow up. Growth screening for 4th grade includes measuring height and weight, and body mass index (BMI) is calculated.The state requires that students also be screened for scoliosis starting in 5th grade. Parents/guardians will be notified of any concerns that need a physician follow up.Parents & Guardians may opt out of any screening. Please notify the school nurse in writing if you would like to opt out of any screening this school year by November 14th.
