Chadron Public Schools
2020 Health Screenings
Hope this letter finds each of you and your families off to a great school year!
We are writing to let you know that the required school health screenings will be held on November 3rd and 4th.
The schedule will be as follows:
November 3rd morning- High School (10th - 11th grades)
November 3rd afternoon - Intermediate School (3rd - 4th)
November 4th morning - Primary School (K - 2nd)
November 4th afternoon - Middle School (6th - 7th)
These are routine school days so we will be pulling your child’s class for a short time to complete a hearing,
dental, vision and height, weight screening. A current physical is required for incoming Kindergarten and
7th grade students so they will not be participating in the height/weight portion. Incoming Kindergarten
students are required to have a current vision exam, they will not be completing that portion at this time.
Kindergarten hearing screenings have already been completed. These screenings are not only a requirement
by the State of Nebraska but also very important in early diagnosis of potential barriers in a student’s ability
to learn and grow!
CAPWN Dental will also be completing dental screenings and/or treatments for ALL grades who’s
permission slips (sent home the beginning of the year) were filled out and returned.
If you do not want your child/ren to participate in the free screenings, you will need to come to the school
and sign a waiver. Due to the screenings being a state requirement, we will need you to provide the school
with documented results from your private providers for each area of screening, completed within the last
6mths, by December 1, 2020.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
Your School Nurse
