As a service to the children of Buncombe County, the Buncombe County Health Department personnel and the school staff execute screenings for various health purposes. Our Health Fair will be held on October 6 and will help us complete most of the examinations. Included are a vision screening, hearing test, check of height and weight, and a dental screening.
In accordance with Buncombe County Health Department guidelines, we routinely screen students for head lice. We urge you to help us by frequently checking your child at home. Students who have pediculosis capitis (live head lice) shall be excluded from school at the end of the school day until they are effectively treated. Students may return to school once all live lice have been removed.
