Below is a message from Milton High School Nurse, Margaret Gibbons:
The Massachusetts Department of Public Health mandates both scoliosis screening for students in grade 9 and BMI (Body Mass Index) height and weight for students in grade 10. These screenings will begin during block days after Thanksgiving for semester one students during gym classes. The second semester student screenings will begin on block days after mid year exams also during gym classes.
If you do not want your son or daughter to be screened a note from their parent or guardian is REQUIRED to be excused from this mandated screening. If you have any questions about these screenings please contact Margaret Gibbons, high school nurse @ 617-696-4470 ext. 1 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
