In compliance with Arkansas Act 201 of 2007, we will be screening Body Mass Index of only 8th and 10th grade scholars the week of May 24th-28th. 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’s office. Virtual scholars can be screened in person by appointment only, but it is not mandatory. Parents/guardians can request a copy of their scholar’s BMI report after the screening.
Parents/guardians are asked to email the school nurse, Michelle Gilbert, RN 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.
