• Body Mass Index (BMI) Information

     

     

     
    A health report card is available in the health office  for all students in grades kindergarten through grade twelve each year.  This report card will contain information on your child's vision and hearing screening for this year as well as his/her body mass index (BMI) results.  This BMI figure is only a screening tool.  The child's nationality, build, and other factors must be considered.  If your child is outside the normal limits (ONL), we recommend that you check with your physician.  As always, a healthy lifestyle including proper rest, exercise and nutrition is important for our students to stay healthy and to be life long learners.

    MEMORANDUM

     

    Annual Health Screening Information

     

    Dear Parent/Guardian:

     

    Annually, Council Rock School District school nurses, perform general screening procedures for each student.  These may include height, weight, BMI (body mass index) calculation, vision and hearing.   When results of vision and hearing screenings are outside normal limits parents are notified. 

     

    Height, Weight, BMI calculation and Vision Screening are performed annually.

     

    Hearing Screening is performed annually for students in grades K, 1, 2, 3, 7, 11 and for other students when there are hearing concerns. 

     

    Each year this information is recorded in your child’s health record and is available to parents or guardians. Due to confidentiality of the screening results, CRSD must provide these results directly to you. 

     

    A district wide mailing of these results to your home is very expensive, and in this tough economic climate we are looking at ways to minimize or reduce these costs.  This savings can hopefully be used productively for important instructional programs that benefit your child.

     

    If  possible please contact the health office at your child’s school and set up a time to come in and pick up your child’s health report card so the cost of mailing may be eliminated.  The health office is open during normal school hours.

     

    Thank you for you help and cooperation.
