School health screenings have started and should finish 
up by mid-November.  A written notice was requested by 09/27/21 if you didn't want your child to participate.  


For Kindergarten students, your child's School Entry Physical is reviewed.  If a hearing screening and/or vision screening were not completed, the school nurse checks and sends notices home if there are concerns.

Third graders, fifth graders and new students to Bedford County Schools also have vision and hearing checked.

Scoliosis checks start in 5th grade.  If the school nurse finds a concern, you will be notified.


Please do a daily wellness check on your child:

Does your child have cold/flu-like symptoms such as nasal drainage, sore throat, persistent cough, difficulty breathing, headache, chills, significant muscle aches/pains, loss of taste/smell or diarrhea?  OR does your child have a fever? 
KEEP HOME and contact your family doctor for advice.

IF somebody in your household has tested positive, please keep all children home and contact your school nurse.




Please provide your child with a mask.

Make sure your child knows how to properly put on his/her mask.  

Reinforce proper hand washing with your child (a minimum of 20 seconds with warm, soapy water).
