Italy Health Services will do Spinal Screening on March 16 and March 17, 2021. State law requires that schools must screen students for abnormal spinal curvature in accordance with the following schedule:
TUESDAY, MARCH 16, 2021 – STAFFORD ELEMENTARY
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, 2021 – ITALY HIGH SCHOOL
Girls will be screened two times, once at age 10 and again at age 12.
Boys will be screened one time at age 13 or 14.
Trained screeners will check your child for signs of spinal problems like scoliosis.
Catching a spinal problem early can make the treatment much easier. Not treating spinal problems can lead to serious health problems.
The screening is simple. Screeners will look at your child’s back while he or she stands and bends forward.
• Students should bring shorts to school for the exam.
• Girls should wear a thin t-shirt or a sports bra or a two-piece swimsuit top underneath their shirt on exam day.
• If girls are wearing a sports bra or a two-piece swimsuit top underneath their shirt, it is recommended they remove their shirt for the screening.
• Boys and girls will be screened separately and one at a time.
The school will send you a letter if your child does not pass the screening. The letter will tell you how to follow up with a doctor.
This screening is not a medical exam. Your child still needs to see a doctor for checkups.
If you do not wish to have your child screened for religious reasons, you must submit an exemption form to the school no later than March 15, 2021.
Thank you for your cooperation,
Italy ISD Health Services.
There will be no virtual instruction today due to no internet at the Stafford campus. Also parents, our phone lines will be down today as well. We apologize for this inconvenience. We will keep you updated as soon as new information arrives.

Alert! Italy ISD will have a 2 hour delay in the start time on Monday, January 11th. Buses will run 2 hours later than normal. Thank you.
Out of abundance of caution, Italy ISD will be extending its holiday break until Monday, January 11th. This is partly due to a rise in Covid-19 cases among our faculty and staff. Faculty, staff, and students will all return to school on the 11th at their regular times.
