Attention TMS & THS Parents and Students

Dear Parent/Guardian:


 Trinity High School and Trinity Middle School will be conducting spinal screenings on Tuesday February 16th for girls and Wednesday February 17th for boys.  The purpose of spinal screenings is to detect the signs of Scoliosis, a common spinal abnormality found in adolescents, is a sideways twisting of the spine.  It is usually detected in children between ages 10 and 14.  Kyphosis, sometimes called round back, is an exaggerated rounding of the upper back and is often confused with poor posture.  Many cases of curvature of the spine are mild and require only ongoing observation by a physician when they are first diagnosed.  Others can worsen with time as the child grows and requires active treatment such as bracing and surgery.  Early treatment can prevent the development of a service deformity, which can affect a person’s appearance and health.


 The procedure for screening is simple.  Screeners who have been specially trained will look at your child’s back while he/she stands and then bends forward.  For this examination, boys and girls will be seen separately and individually.  


STUDENTS SHOULD WEAR OR BRING SHORTS TO SCHOOL FOR THE EXAM.  ALL STUDENTS MUST REMOVE THEIR SHIRT FOR THIS EXAM.  FOR THIS REASON, WE REQUEST THAT THE GIRLS WEAR A HALTER TOP, TUBE TOP, SPORTS BRA, OR A TWO-PIECE SWIMSUIT TOP UNDER THEIR SHIRT ON EXAM DAY.


 Parents will be notified of the results only if professional follow-up is necessary.  This screening procedure does not replace your child’s need for regular health care and check-ups.  


 According to state law, all students in grades 6 and 9 must receive the spinal screening.  If, for religious reasons, you do not wish to have your child screened, you are to submit an affidavit of religious exemption to the school nurse's office.  


Thank you for your cooperation,

Sincerely,

Misty Coleman

Secondary School Nurse
