Scoliosis screenings are scheduled for all middle school students during gym periods of the first week following Christmas vacation. This exam checks students for signs associated with abnormal curvature of the spine. It takes place in the gym locker rooms during regular gym periods and is conducted by Mrs. Hart, with assistance from PE teachers who manage the movement of students through the process. Students are checked one at a time, behind a screen for privacy. The process takes only a minute or two. Positive findings are confirmed by the school doctor, Dr. Cook, later in January before referrals are made to parents.
Parents are encouraged to contact Mrs. Hart if they have any questions about any of the screening information. She can be reached at 897-1663 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org..
