Posted On:

Sometime during the months of January/February, the school nurse will check for spinal deformities (scoliosis, kyphosis and lordosis). The purpose is to recognize, at the earliest stage, any deviation from normal so that the need for treatment can be determined. Spinal Screening is required annually by law of school children in the State of Alabama in grades 5-9. 
If your child is receiving medical care for a spinal deformity from a physician, please contact the school nurse to request a form for your child's physician to complete in order for your child to be exempted.
