Health Screenings

Highland Park Independent School Districts School Nurses will perform age-appropriate health screenings as designated by the Texas Department of State Health Services.  If you do not wish to have your child screened, please let your school nurse know by the first week of the school year. You may substitute a professional examination by a licensed Health Care provider of your choice.  Please contact your School Nurse for further instructions.
The results of these screenings may indicate that your child requires diagnostic evaluation beyond school capabilities.  The School Nurse will send a referral letter to students that require further evaluation by a licensed Health Care Provider.
  • All first-time students to Highland Park Independent School District are required to be screened.
