Scoliosis Information

Scoliosis Screening Information

In March of every year the 7th graders will be screened for scoliosis by the nurse or physical education teachers, as per N.J. 18A: 40-43.3. Scoliosis is a condition where the spine may curve to the left or right. It is most commonly found during the period of rapid growth. The purpose of the screening is to recognize scoliosis in its earliest stages. The dates of the screenings will be posted on the EMS web page and via eblast. Girls may wear a bathing suit top, camisole or a similiar garment. Please be sure your daughter is prepared. Boys will be required to remove their shirts. All 7th graders will be screened.

If you do not want your child screened by the school faculty, please alert the school nurse in writing.
