From Mrs. Morse about health screenings mandated by New York State, including Body-Mass-Index information and weight status group: As part of a required school health examination, a student is weighed and his/her height is measured. These numbers are used to figure out the student's body mass index or "B M I." The B M I helps the doctor or nurse know if the student's weight is in a healthy range or is too high or too low. Recent changes to the New York State Education Law require that B M I and weight status group be included as part of the student's school health examination. We will be reporting to New York State Department of Health information about our students' weight status groups. Only summary information is sent. No names and no information about individual students are sent. However, you may choose to have your child's information excluded from this survey report via the form DUE BY DECEMBER 11, 2020. See "Body-Mass-Index Opt-Out Form" below; you can also find printed copies in the Main Office.
