A recent change to the New York State Education Law requires BMI and weight status category be included as part of the student’s school health examination. The New York State Department of Health has notified schools and local doctors of this change. Physical examinations have always included height and weight measurements. Now doctors use this information to determine the student’s BMI and the weight status category. This helps doctors and nurses to know if a student’s weight is in a healthy range or is too high or too low. Monroe Woodbury Central School District has been selected by the New York State Department of Health to take part in a survey reporting information about our students’ weight status groups. The purpose of the survey is to help health officials develop programs that make it easier for children to be healthier.
The information will be gathered from the required physicals provided by your physician or from physicals completed in school for students in kindergarten and grades 2, 4, 7 and 10. Only summary information will be provided to the State. No student name or other identifying information will be sent.
However, you may choose to have your child’s information excluded from this survey report. If you do not wish your child’s weight status group information included as part of the Health Department’s survey this year, please indicate this in writing to your child’s School Nurse by October 1st of this school year. If you need further information regarding this survey please feel free to call your child’s health office to speak with the School Nurse.
