All seventh graders will be screened for scoliosis this year by the school nurse unless the parent requests that the child's private health care provider will do the screening (as shown on the current school year registration/emergency card). A notice will be sent home later in the year advising of when scoliosis screenings will take place.
A new state law (N.J.S.A. 18A:40-42) requires public schools to annually distribute a fact sheet about Human Papillomavirus (HPV) to the parents of 7th graders. See below:
