Health Programs & Screenings

Elementary Maturation Presentation

The Maturation program is titled “Always Changing-About You” by Proctor & Gamble.  Information related to normal changes occurring for this age group will be discussed and led by local doctors in our community.  Boys and girls will be separated for the presentation.  This includes the viewing of a short, age appropriate video called “Always Changing-About You.”  Each student will also be provided with packets containing maturation information and sample items for each child to keep and discuss with their parent/guardian later.

The willingness of parent/guardians to help answer questions and correct any misperceptions greatly contributes to a child’s understanding of the content.  Parents may attend the program, however, it is asked that comments and discussions be saved for after the presentation.  Permission slips will be sent home prior.

Screenings

Screenings detect conditions early and with quick treatment, decrease potential health problems or complications. Screenings are not for diagnosis but rather identify those children who need further evaluation by a health care provider.

Vision Screening

A vision screen is required prior to children entering kindergarten and all new students to PCSD. Vision screening is mandated for all school age children grades pre-K, K, 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, and 9. Tenth graders may be screened as part of their driver’s education. If your student does not pass the screening, a referral letter will be sent in the mail.

Scoliosis

In the UDOH 1/9/2017, Utah School Spinal Screening Guidelines, “the Utah Department of Health recommends against routine school scoliosis screening in Utah.” The Park City School Health Service Department will provide parents information on how to screen their students for scoliosis yearly for students in grades 5th – 8th. You may contact your student’s school nurse or medical provider if you have any questions or concerns.
