School Screening Guidelines for Potential COVID-19 Symptoms or Exposure
Medications At School
- All medications that need to be given during the school day must have a written doctor's order and parent permission. This is required by law. (See the Middle School Clinic homepage for a link to print the forms used at Beavercreek City Schools.)
- Medication forms are needed for students who carry inhalers. They are kept on file in the nurses' office. Again this is required by state law.
- Students are not to carry any medications anywhere on school property. Please be sure to arrange for an adult to bring in your child's medications.
Vaccines Needed for 7th Grade Entry
Ohio Revised Code section 3701.12 and 3313.671 calls for students entering the 7th grade to obtain a tetanus, diptheria, and acellular pertussis vaccine (Tdap) and Meningitis vaccine. Therefore, your current sixth grader will need to show proof of having received these vaccines before they return to school in August. Please take this notice to your physician and return the completed information to your middle school nurse.
Immunizations are also available at the Greene County Health Department at minimal or no cost. You may call them at (937)374-5668 for the office hours. Students must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
Please note: The Ohio Dept. of Health is no longer accepting the Td vaccine in place of the Tdap vaccine starting school year 2013-14. Please have your doctor check with the Ohio Dept. of Health if they are not aware of this change!!!
If your 6th grader gets immunizations while at a doctor's appointment please provide documentation to the school clinic. Many doctors administer the Tdap and Meningitis immunizations during routine check-ups.
Posture Screening in Middle School
The screening procedure takes less than one minute and requires the screener look at the student's back with the student standing up and then bent forward in a toe touch position. The screener looks for the following:
- Does the head and base of neck line up with the lower back?
- Is one shoulder higher than the other?
- Is one shoulder blade more prominent than the other?
- Is there a deeper crease over one side of the waist than the other, or is there a greater distance between the arm and the body on one side or the other?
- Does the spine itself appear to curve?
- Is there assymmetrical contour of the truck and hips?
- Does the rib cage appear to bulge on one side or the other while the student is bent forward?
