Screenings for Hearing and Vision are conducted on all students in Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, and 5th grades as required by state law. These students are also screened for Acanthosis Nigricans (an early endocrine problem indicator).
All 5th grade girls will be screened for scoliosis or other spinal problems as required by state law.
Fifth grade boys and girls will be taught about body changes during puberty and hygiene utilizing the "Always Changing and Growing-Up" program available through P&G School Programs. You may view more information about the program on their website, and more detail/ direct links will be provided when permission slips are sent out prior to the scheduled education day.
