Ecker Hill to hold scoliosis screenings
Ecker Hill Middle School is scheduled to hold screenings for scoliosis, a potentially dangerous curvature of the spine, for students March 16 and March 17. According to the school’s website, ehms.pcschools.us, the screenings are optional and will be performed at the request of a parent or guardian. To have their students tested, parents must return the permission form that was sent home with students last week. Students will be pulled from physical education classes for the screenings. Parents will be notified of the results only if an abnormality is found and a follow-up visit to a doctor is recommended. More information about scoliosis can be found in a newsletter posted on Ecker Hill’s website.
