Gentry Junior Clinic

 

Gentry Junior School staff encourages you to send your child to school daily. In order for students to keep up with school work, they should be well rested, eat balanced meals and practice safe health habits.

We are working diligently to keep all students healthy. However, there has been an increase in students being sent to school with symptoms of illness. This promotes the spread of infection. Please observe your child for any of the illnesses listed below and keep them home when necessary.

Forms & Information
  • Every Kindergarten, first, third, and fifth grade student will have their hearing and vision screened. If the student fails either of these screenings a referral will be sent home recommending follow up with a physician.


    Students in first, third, and fifth grade will be screened for acanthosis nigricans. It is a skin condition that signals high insulin levels in the body. Acanthosis nigricans screenings can help identify persons who have high insulin levels and who may be at risk for developing diabetes.


    All fifth grade students will be screened for scoliosis. This screening will take place in the spring and parents will be notified prior to screening date. The purpose of the screening is to detect the signs of abnormal curves of the spine at their earliest stages so that the need for treatment can be determined. Scoliosis, a common spinal abnormality found in adolescents, is a sideways twisting of the spine. It is usually detected in children between 10 and 14 years of age.
