School Health Assessments

From time to time during the year, screening may be provided through a contract with the South Dakota Department of Health (DOH), who is subject to the rules and regulations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).  HIPAA requires that the DOH provide access to our Notices of Privacy Practices.  The DOH notice my be viewed on their website at www.state.sd.us/doh or request a printed copy by calling 1-800-305-3064.

Screenings that will be provided during the school year include:

Abnormal curvature of the spine is usually first noticed at the beginning of the adolescent growth spurt.  Often early detection and appropriate treatment can prevent progression.  The screening procedure takes about 30 seconds and does require the student to remove his/her shirt or blouse in order that the spine can be visually observed by the Community Health Nurse.

A child not included in the grades/service listed above can be screened with the written consent of the parent/legal guardian.

Parents will be notified of any concerns identified during the health screenings so their child can be further evaluated by the provider of the parent’s choice.

When a vision or hearing screening indicates additional testing is needed, the nurse can discuss possible accommodations that can be made in the classroom for the benefit of the child.  If you DO NOT WANT an abnormal hearing or vision screening result to be shared with school personnel, please contact the school for a form to sign and return.
