The state mandated spinal screenings for 7th grade girls and 8th grade boys is 1 December. If you need to opt out for religious reasons the affidavit of religious exemption needs to be turned in no later than Wednesday, 30 November 2021. Students should wear or bring shorts to school for the exam. All students must remove their shirt for this exam. For this reason, we request that girls wear a halter top, tube top, sports bra, or a two-piece swimsuit top underneath their shirt on exam day. Contact the nurse, RN Dayna Gwaltney, with any further questions.
