Tuesday, December 5, 2017

On Thursday, December 7, 2017, a team of PISD, certified screeners will be coming to do a scoliosis check on Robinson's 8th graders, in accordance with Texas state law.  The purpose of the screen is to recognize curvatures of the spine at their earliest stages so that appropriate treatment can be initiated should it be necessary.  Students will be screened individually, ensuring privacy and girls should wear a bra or swim suit top so the spine, shoulders and rib cage are visible.  A letter will be sent to the parents of those students whose screening and re-screening results indicate they may need medical evaluation.  If, for religious reasons, you do not wish to have your child screened, please submit a notarized affidavit of exemption to me, Christie Camizzi, RN, School Nurse, prior to the scheduled screening.  The form may be obtained from the clinic.  If your student is not screened by school personnel, please provide documentation of the screening results from your health care provider. Thank you so much!
