BMI Screenings

Dear Parent/ Guardian of 10th grade students,

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health has proposed the following amendments in order to improve the screening and monitoring of children’s weights across the state. The goal is to improve early detection of children who may be at risk for overweight and obesity. This year, the screenings will be conducted over the next few weeks.

In addition to measuring height and weight, we will use a standard screening tool called the Body Mass Index (BMI). This measurement tool will be used to identify children who may be at risk for special health problems. Your child’s screening will be supervised by the school nurse, and the student’s privacy will be respected at all times. All results are strictly confidential, recorded on each child’s individual health record, and a copy will be sent home to you in the mail. We encourage you to share these results with your child’s healthcare provider, as they are in the best position to evaluate your child’s overall health.

If your child has had their height and weight measured by their health care provider within the last 12 months, and you would like to decline or waive this screening, please inform the nurse of this in writing and we will excuse them from the screening.

Please contact us here in the health office with any questions or concerns at 978-921-6132 option #7. Thank you! Your BHS nurses.
