Health Assessment Document Change for 2018-2019
Any student with noted health conditions on the Health portion of Infosnap/Health Assessment forms will require verification/documentation from their physician prior to the development or continuation of a health care plan. Please provide the latter documentation to your child's school nurse as soon as possible, preferably prior to students' first day of school.
How Much Weight is in Your Child's Backpack?
ATTENTION PARENTS: IS YOUR CHILD CARRYING 20-30% OF THEIR BODY WEIGHT IN THEIR BACKPACK? According to Change.org (2017), it is medically proven that children carrying more than 10% of their body weight is damaging to their spines. "Just because you can’t see the internal damage, doesn’t mean it isn’t happening" (Sams, 2017).
BECOME AWARE OF THE IMPORTANCE OF ENSURING THAT YOUR CHILD IS CARRYING NO MORE THAN 10% OF THEIR WEIGHT IN THEIR BACKPACK. -VISIT www.bacsupport.com FOR MORE INFORMATION.
