Screenings are also done if the parent and/or teacher request it. School nurses perform the screenings. The screening is not a diagnostic tool; it simply indicates that further medical evaluation is needed. If you receive a screening referral for your child, follow up with his/her physician. Please be sure to notify the nurse of the results so we are aware of any changes in their health status. Parents or legal guardians who have a religious objection to these screenings should contact the school nurse.
