George Washington High School will be participating in the Universal Screening for all students in the 9th grade. This screening consists of hearing, vision, height, and weight. The health portion of Universal Screening is not an assessment or an evaluation. This screening is considered to be essential for identifying students who may need extra supports and connecting them with the appropriate resources to become better learners. George Washington is committed to helping students reach their full academic potential.
Your student will receive screening in the following areas: Hearing, Vision, Body Mass Index. The health screening components will take place Tuesday, April 18, through Friday, April 21. Parents/Guardians of students who were absent or who did not have optimal hearing or vision screening will be notified in writing/email regarding results.
If you decide that you do not want your child to participate or receive any Universal Screening components, please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not respond, it is assumed that you wish for your child to participate in all aspects of the Universal Screening.
Please contact George Washington High School’s Nurse Myriam Manrriquez, MSN, RN at 720-423-8635 with any further questions or concerns. Thank you!
