2017-2018 Chadron Public Schools
Hope this letter finds each of you and your families enjoying the beautiful fall season!
We are writing to let you know the 2017-2018 Chadron Public Schools Health Screenings will be held on September 25 and 26, 2017. The state of Nebraska requires students in 1st - 4th, 7th and 10th grades to complete a hearing, vision, dental and height, weight and blood pressure screenings. Students in 8th and 11th grades will complete a hearing and vision screening. 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!
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, you will need to provide the school with screening results from your private provider (hgt, wgt, BMI and BP), eye doctor, dentist and hearing specialist by December 1, 2017.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
Your School Nurses
