  • From the Oakland Middle School Nurse

    To:               Parents/Guardians and Students

    From:           Sara Korman, RN

    Subject:       SPINAL SCREENING

     

    On February 14th and 15th, 2018 a spinal screening will be offered at Oakland to 6th grade girls, 7th and 8th grade boys or any student who previously had an abnormal spinal screening.

    Although this screening is not mandatory, it is an important part of our health program and we strongly urge l00% participation.  If the student is not to participate, advance written notification by a parent/ guardian must be provided to the school nurse. 

    1. What is a spinal screening?

    It is a quick and simple examination of the back to detect abnormalities such as scoliosis, a lateral curvature of the spine, and kyphosis, an abnormal backward protrusion of the spine.

    1. What is the screening process?

    All students need to be bare-backed to properly view the back.  Girls may wear halter tops, swimsuit tops or bras.  The student stands on a designated mark in front of the screener.  The nurse will ask the student to assume certain movements to visualize the shoulders, back and waist from different angles. 

    1. What happens if an abnormality is suspected?

    Students will be re-examined after the first screening and parents/guardians will be notified if an abnormality is suspected.  It is recommended to contact your health care provider for further medical evaluation. 

    1. What causes a spinal abnormality and how is it treated?

    The cause of most spinal abnormalities is unknown.  There seems to be a hereditary factor in some instances.  Your provider will evaluate and determine the best plan of treatment.  Most cases are evaluated over a period of time, while some may require braces or surgery. 

          5. Why have a spinal screening program?

    Spinal abnormalities are not preventable.  Early detection and appropriate treatment are the most effective means to prevent long term adverse effects. 

    For questions or to opt your student out, please contact your Oakland School Nurse at 214-3223. 

    Sincerely,

    Sara Korman, RN

  • ATTENTION 8th GRADE GUARDIANS

    Posted by Rebecca Bevel-Smith on 8/7/2017

    ATTENTION 8thGRADE GUARDIANS

     

    The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services recently revised the Missouri School Immunization Requirements.  Beginning with the 2016 – 2017 school year, the following immunizations will be required:

     

    • For all incoming 8th grade students, one Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) vaccine will be required if the student has not received a Td booster since August 2014.  In addition, one meningococcal vaccine (meningitis) will be required.

     

    If your child has received a recent Tdap and/or meningitis vaccine, please send proof of the immunization to your school nurse or have the health care provider fax the immunization record to the school nurse at 214-3221.

    If your child has not received these vaccines, the immunizations need to be completed before they can receive schedules for the 2017-2018 school year in August.  

    Immunizations are available from:

     

    • Local health care providers
    • Columbia/Boone County Department of Public Health and Human Services, 1005 W. Worley, no appointment necessary; M-F 8-4:30.

     

    For questions regarding your child’s vaccination history, please call your school nurse at 214-3223 or email  skorman@cpsk12.org.

     

    Sincerely,

    Nurse Sara Korman, RN
