SCREENING PROGRAMS                                                                          5.11.5


As required by the State of Massachusetts, children are screened for vision, hearing and postural problems, Parents will be notified of any problems that are discovered during screenings. In order for a child to be excluded from postural screening, written verification from a physician stating that this exam has been done must be presented to the Health Office.


Periodically, school health personnel examine the hair and the scalp of each child for the presence of head lice. A child who has an infestation will be sent home with directions for treatment. Any child returning to school following a head lice problem must be examined by the school nurse and found to be free of both adult lice and eggs (nits) before returning to class.
