Health Screenings

Health Screenings 

The NJ Department of Education and district policy require that the Certified School Nurse conduct annual health screenings on all students enrolled in our schools.  In addition, our district utilizes Dr. Lynn Porreca to conduct vision screenings and Dr. Ketan Patel to conduct an above the waist physical screening as described below.  Results of all screenings are sent home to the parent/guardian in writing.  If you do not want your child to participate in any of these health screenings, please notify the School Nurse in writing.  The district approved screening schedule as conducted by the school nurse is as follows:

Height/Weight/Blood Pressure – all students

Color vision screening – students in grade 1 or not previously screened

Scoliosis screening – students aged 10, biennially

Hearing screening – students in kindergarten, grades 1, 2, and 3

A teacher or parent may request a hearing or vision screening for any student with academic concerns.

Vision screening by Dr. Porreca – grades 1,3,5 and special education

Above the waist physical screening by Dr. Patel – grade 3
