Good afternoon CSUS families and caregivers,

Happy Halloween! We hope everyone celebrating has a safe, warm, fun night tonight. A reminder to families and scholars that candy should NOT come to school tomorrow or any day for safety/allergy reasons.

Please note that we have a Lockdown Drill this Thursday, November 2. We also have an Early Release Day on November 15; this was miscommunicated in last week’s letter. Please see below for other updates and reminders.

Reminder from our School Nurse: Scoliosis Screening
Every year the state of Massachusetts requires all school nurses to perform postural screenings on students in grades 5 through 9. This simple visual examination allows us to see if your child’s spine (backbone) is growing properly. This year's screening will take place in school during the week of November 13th, 2023.  The vast majority of students are without postural problems. Your child will be asked to see a doctor/pediatrician as a precaution only if there is an unusual finding. 

The exam will be performed individually in a completely private setting. To help us with the screening, your child should wear a tank top or bathing suit top underneath their clothing to school on these days. 

Please sign this form or email Nurse Ruth at [email protected] only if you do not want your child to be screened. Please call 857.235.2974 if you have any special concerns.
