2018-19 Chadron Public Schools
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 mandatory school health screenings will be held on September 6th and 7th. The schedule will be as follows:
September 6th morning- High School (10th - 11th grades)
September 6th afternoon - Intermediate School (3rd - 4th)
September 7th morning - Primary School (K - 2nd)
September 7th afternoon - Middle School (6th - 7th)
This is a routine school day so we will be pulling your child’s class for a short time to complete a hearing, dental, vision and height, weight screening. Blood pressure screening is an optional screening and will be done if time allows. A current physical is required for incoming Kindergarten and 7th grade students so they will not be participating in the height, weight and BP portion. Incoming Kindergarten students are required to have a current vision exam, they will not be completing that portion at this time. 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 children 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 by October 1, 2018.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
Your School Nurses,
