Student Screening at Otwell
With every new school year the state mandates screening for middle school students. This year, 7th and 8th grade students (only) will participate.
7th grade- scoliosis
8th grade- hearing, vision, and scoliosis
Many children may have already been screened in their yearly physical or are already under doctors care for the treatment of scoliosis. If this is the case for your child and you do not wish to have your child screened, it is imperative that you sign and return a refusal form to your school nurse. The only way for your child to be excused from scoliosis screening is by providing the refusal form to the nurse. Below you will find information on scoliosis screening and a link for the refusal form.
