Scoliosis Screening – Grade 5- girls only

The New York State Education Law requires that all girls in 5th grade receive a school screening examination to identify the possibility of a curvature of the spine (scoliosis). Each child is screened separately.  Girls are required to wear a bra or bathing suit top to allow me to visualize their backs. Please do not have your daughter wear a full-piece bathing suit as this does not allow correct visualization.

I will screen all 5th grade girls during their regular gym period: Monday January 28th for Mrs. O’Neill’s, Ms. Rogan’s, and Mrs. Santoro’s classes; Tuesday, January 29th for Mrs. Farley’s and  Mr.O’Neil’s classes
