Salem Public Schools Nurses are responsible for conducting health screenings as mandated by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. These screenings provide a unique opportunity to positively influence the health status and academic performance of our students by early identification of potential health problems. A schedule of screenings by grade level is available above. Parents/guardians who wish to opt their child out of any of the scheduled health screenings must send a written notice to their child's School Nurse. Please do not hesitate to contact your
child's School Nurse with any questions about our screening programs.
