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 in August or Early September, 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 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.
