HEALTH SCREENINGS - KINDERGARTEN, 1ST, 3RD, & 6TH GRADE ONLY -
In compliance with Florida Statute 381.0056(5a), regarding school health services and in accordance with Department of Health requirements, we will be offered free screening for vision, hearing, and height/weight measurement for growth and development for Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 3rd Grade, and 6th Grade Students. 6th grade students included in the heath check are screened for scoliosis. These health screenings are done annually. All screenings are done individually by certified health care professionals.
Screenings will be conducted throughout the day on Thursday, October 29th. This year, due to social distancing guidelines, we will only be screening 10% of our students in Kinder, 1st, 3rd, and 6th Grades who are Brick and Mortar Learners. If you are a Distance Learner, an email was sent to you about your options for participating in the screening.
The students will be randomly chosen from the listed grade levels to participate in the screening. If your child is tested and the results are not in the “normal” range for the particular test, you will be notified by letter. If you would like to opt out of the health screening, please complete the attached OPT OUT letter and return it to MCA before Thursday, Oct. 22.
