In compliance with Arkansas Act 201 of 2007, HHA at the Jones Center will be screening Body Mass Index of only 8th and 10th grade scholars the week of March 29 through April 1. The screening process is simple. Scholars will be asked to remove their shoes and individually will have their heights and weights recorded in the privacy of the nurse’ office. Virtual scholars can be screened by appointment only during the week. Parents/guardians can request a copy of their scholar’s BMI report after the screening.
Parents/guardians are asked to email Nurse DeSpain at firstname.lastname@example.org if they would like to make an appointment for a virtual scholar; if they would like a copy of the report; if they would like to decline the screening; or if they have any questions.
