State Mandated Screenings & Exams

Pennsylvania School Law establishes the required screenings and examinations for all students within our public school system.  Below you will find a listing by grade the screenings completed by the School Nurse.  Annually you will receive notification of your child's BMI and any abnormal screenings. 
If you are having difficulty finding a physician or dentist that takes your child's insurance, check out the Sadler Health Clinic located in Loysville.  They accept patients with all Medicaid (Gateway, Unison, MA), Medicare and the uninsured. 
Call patient registration at 1-866-Sadler7
