Routine screening of vision and hearing is done in the early part of the school year, each year, in the hopes that we will find any vision or hearing issue early on.
Physical Exams are required for all new students moving or transferring to Medfield, exam dates within a 6 month time frame. Other required physicals are needed in grades 1, 4, 7, and 10. If your child is in 3rd grade you can send it in during the school year to the Wheelock nurse.
In Medfield, our state mandated Growth Screening program (height and weight measurement) is conducted in the 1st, 4th, 7th and 10th grades. The Body Mass Index (BMI) for age percentile ranking is also calculated. The purpose of the Growth Screening Program is to inform parents about a child's growth pattern, alert parents to any potential health problems related to a child's measurements, and to provide educational information on healthy eating and active lifestyles. Although this screening is not conducted at this school, if you would like to discuss your child’s growth pattern or have any concerns in this regard, please call me.
