Nissitissit Middle School will begin conducting state-mandated postural screenings next Monday, January 9 for students in all grades. However, if you return the proper form, your child will be excluded. The school nurse and physical education teachers will conduct these screenings during your child’s physical education class. Boys and girls will be screened separately and privacy will be maintained at all times. To allow for full viewing of the spine, boys will be asked to remove their shirts. Girls should bring a bathing suit top or sports type bra with shorts during the screening days. The screening is a simple 30 second observation of the back: first standing and then bending forward. If your child has any unusual findings, you will receive a letter recommending further evaluation by your child’s physician.
