Students at the Lexington Public Schools are screened yearly according to the Nebraska State Regulations. This screening could include vision, hearing, height, weight, dental or scoliosis. Students are required by law, to participate in these screenings, unless they provide the school with a signed statement by a physician, PA or an APRN, stating that such child has undergone the required inspection within the past six months.  If problems are detected during these screenings the school nurse will notify the parent/guardian with written notice or phone contact. The parent/guardian are requested to take the student to the physician, dentist or optometrist for further evaluation.
