As always, your child’s health screening will include vision, hearing, dental health, blood pressure, height, and weight. Beginning this year, the Nebraska Dept. of Health and Human Services also requires the calculation of body mass index (BMI) with a percentile ranking. For the elementary, BMI’s will be shared on students’ hgt/wgt slips and sent home with report cards. If your child is in Jr. high or high school and you want to know his/her BMI or have any questions, please notify me.
