03-19-2019 Scoliosis Screening

Scoliosis Screening
Dear Parent/Guardian:

New Jersey State Law requires that schools offer a biennial screening program for the detection of scoliosis or curvature of the spine, for students 10-18 years of age. 

The school nurse carries out the screening. It is simple and takes less than 20 seconds per student. The examiner looks at the child’s back as he or she stands and bends forward. If your child is found to have a possible curvature, you will be notified.

MHS North is scheduled to have its students screened on March 19th and 20th.
