Health Room News - Scoliosis Screening, Grade 9

Scoliosis screening will begin for 9th graders in December during physical education and health classes.  Students who are not screened in December will be screened in January and February also during health / physical education classes.  This is a Department of Public Health mandate and grade nine is the last year for scoliosis screening.  Students are presently screened in grades 5 – 9 due to the significant growth that normally takes place during these years.  Any questions or concerns can be directed to the health room at 617–696–4470 ext. 1 for Mrs. Margaret Gibbons, R.N. In addition, if there are other health issues or concerns that Mrs. Gibbons can be of any assistance please feel free to call or email her at mgibbons@miltonps.org.
