Dear Parents/Guardians,

As part of Pennsylvania’s Mandated School Health Program, students participated in health screening assessments. All of the health screenings for the 2020-2021 school year have been completed*. The results of your child’s screenings, including height and weight, can be found on the Parent Portal. After logging in, choose the “Nurse Screenings” tab and you will see this year's (and previous years’) data.

Referrals will be emailed for any student who failed or provided unreliable results for the vision screening or hearing screening. If you receive a referral letter, this does not mean there is necessarily a problem but rather indicates that a more complete exam by a physician is recommended. Please provide documentation of any follow-up exams to your child’s school nurse. A recent eye exam or lens prescription is adequate documentation for vision referrals.

If you have any questions regarding your child’s health screening data, please contact nursing@vfes.net.

Sincerely,

Paige Tursi, RN, BSN, CSN
Certified School Nurse
The Vanguard School

*Health screenings were not completed for students learning virtually at this time. Please reach out to your school nurse if your child is currently learning virtually and you wish to arrange a time to have him/her screened in person.
