Health Requirements

Important: New Immunization Requirements

The Department of Health is changing school immunization regulations beginning in August 2017. The regulations are intended to ensure that children attending school in the commonwealth are adequately protected against potential outbreaks of vaccine preventable diseases.

Students must receive all required vaccinations within the first five days of school or risk exclusion.

Annual Health Screening

Pennsylvania state-mandated health screenings are conducted yearly in the fall by the district nurses. The results of these screenings are sent to parents and a recommendation for further evaluation is given when a problem is detected.

  • Near and Far Vision All grades, every year
  • Color, Stereo Depth & Plus Lens Vision Grade 2
  • Hearing Grades K, 1, 2, 3, 7, 11
  • Scoliosis Grades 6 & 7
  • Height & Weight All grades, every year
  • Body Mass Index All grades, every year

The Body Mass Index (BMI), developed by the Centers for Disease Control, is used as a screening tool to identify possible weight problems in children. The BMI is calculated from body weight adjusted for height, age and gender. It is used to help determine whether a child is within a normal growth pattern, overweight, at risk of becoming overweight or underweight. Referral to your family physician for further evaluation is recommended for children who have a BMI outside the normal range less than the 5th percentile and greater than the 85th percentile.

It is important to keep in mind that this is only a screening and your childs health care provider is the best person to evaluate whether or not your childs measurements are within a healthy range.
