Exams Done At School

The nurses at Holy Angels Regional School support your student’s academic success by promoting health in the school setting. One way that we provide care for your students is by performing the health screenings as mandated by Laws of the State of New York.

During the school year, the following screenings will be required or completed at school. The school physical may be done by your child’s private physician or at no cost by the school physician. The scoliosis screening is also done at this time.

Vision:

  • Distance acuity for all newly entering students and students in PreK, Kindergarten, Grades 1, 2, 3 and 7.

  • Near vision acuity and color perception screening for all newly entering students, except PreK and Kindergarten. Screening for this is done in 1st grade.

Hearing:

  • Hearing screening for all newly entering students and students in PreK, Kindergarten, Grades 1, 3, 5 and 7.

Scoliosis

Health Appraisals

  • A physical examination including blood pressure, scoliosis screening, Body Mass Index and Weight Status Category Information is required for all newly entering students and students in PreK, Kindergarten, Grades 2, 4 and 7.

  • Height and weight is done yearly on every student in the health office.

Dental Certificates
