Body Mass Index is part of required school health check
New York State Education Law
requires body mass index, or BMI, and weight status group to be included in
a student’s school health examination.
To determine BMI, a student is weighed and his/her
height is measured. The BMI helps the nurse or doctor know if the
student’s weight is in a healthy range or is too high or too low.
Each year, the New York State Department of
Health will survey some schools for the number of pupils in each of six
possible weight status categories.
a sample of school districts will be selected to
take part in a survey by the New York State Department of Health. If
Schoharie Central School District is selected to be part of the survey,
the district will report information about students' weight status
groups to the Health Department. Such information will then used by
state officials to develop programs to help children be healthier.
Only summary information is sent. No names or
information about individual students are included. However, parents and
guardians may choose to have their child’s information excluded from the
Parents/guardians who do not want their child’s
weight status group information included as part of the Health
Department’s survey this year should contact Elementary School
Nurse Sherry Roy, R.N.at 295-6660, or Jr./Sr. High School Nurse Suzan
Weber, R.N. at 295-6634.
Protect your kids! Prescription drug alert
Many young people believe it is safe to take
“medicine” out of the cabinet even if that medicine was not prescribed
for them. And many of today's prescriptions are written for pain
medications that can be deadly, addictive and in some cases lead to
the use of very dangerous illegal drugs like heroin.
Education is the key. Parents: speak to your teens
about the dangers of misusing prescription drugs and why they should not
use other persons' medications.
