Growth Screening
Growth Screening

In accordance with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health Laws and Regulations 105 CMR 200.500, the weight and height shall be measured for each student in grades 1, 4, 7, and 10 (or, in the case of ungraded classrooms, by a student's 7th, 10th, 13th and 16th birthday). This information is used to calculate the student's Body Mass Index (BMI) which is included in the student's health record and sent to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.  This information is available to parents/guardians upon request; no report of this data will be automatically mailed home.

Parents/guardians who wish to opt their child out of scheduled health screenings will need to submit a written request to the School Nurse.  Parents/guardians should contact their School Nurse with any questions about scheduled health screenings.
