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
September 8, 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.
with Buncombe County Health Department guidelines, we routinely screen
students for head lice. We urge you to help us by frequently checking
your children at home. Children with head lice must be treated with
medicated shampoo and be free of nits (Buncombe County School Board
Policy) before returning to school.
