Middle School Health Screenings

posted Sep 24, 2017, 12:54 PM by Trevor Wenger   [ updated Sep 24, 2017, 12:55 PM ]

In accordance with the new Nebraska State Statute, #173 NAC 7, Millard Public Schools is required to provide health screenings to 7th grade students enrolled in our district. Health screenings are not intended to be diagnostic, but to identify students with potential problems. 

The required screenings include, vision (distance), hearing, height, weight, and dental screenings. 7th grade students who have not had these screenings completed during their 7th grade physical or during school orientation will be screened at their school. Screenings will be conducted during the months of October and November.

The state statute requiring health screenings in Nebraska does not allow a waiver option. Parents can request that their child not be screened at school but, parents/guardians must have their medical professional complete the Parent/Guardian Exception Form and an Affidavit of Parent/Guardian Refusal of School Health Screenings Form.  The student’s screening by a medical provider must be provided to the school health office by December 1, 2015. If a completed Parent/Guardian Exception Form and an Affidavit of Parent/Guardian Refusal of School; Health Screenings Form from a medical provider are not provided by December 1, 2015, the child will be screened at school. The cost of screening by an alternate provider is the responsibility of the parent/guardian.

If you have any questions about the health screening process, please contact the District’s Head Nurse, Katie Kintzle, at (402)715-6322 or email at kakintzle@mpsomaha.org.

September is Suicide Awareness and Prevention Month

posted Sep 6, 2017, 7:51 AM by Trevor Wenger   [ updated Sep 6, 2017, 7:51 AM ]

During the month of September, school counselors, social workers, and school psychologists will educate students on suicide awareness and prevention.  Together we can work to prevent suicide.  Research shows that students who think about suicide give warning signs.  Our community of parents, school staff, and public agencies must come together to identify students who are at risk to get them the help they need.  The National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) highlights the following as some warning signs of suicide:


  • Suicidal threats in the forms of direct and indirect statements

  • Suicide notes and plans

  • Prior suicidal behavior

  • Making final arrangements (e.g., making funeral arrangements, writing a will, giving away prized possessions.)

  • Preoccupation with death

  • Changes in behavior, appearance, thoughts and/or feelings


If you observe these signs in your child, please call the hotline number (1-800-SUICIDE) or seek assistance from your school’s counselor, social worker or psychologist.

If you prefer your child not receive this information please contact your school counselor by phone or e-mail.

WOW! That's Engineering Program Information

2017 WOW! That’s Engineering! 
Shifting Gears: Women in Engineer
Saturday, September 30, 2017 | 8:30 am to 3:00 pm







WHAT WE DO
In order to encourage young women across the country to become involved with engineering and technology, the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) launched a program called “WOW! That’s Engineering!” For a third year, the Eastern Nebraska Section of SWE is hosting this outreach program in the Omaha area. The demand for engineering and technology professionals is growing three times faster than any other occupation, yet the enrollment in colleges of engineering is declining - particularly among females! We need to encourage young women to consider the possibilities a career in engineering and technology has to over. This program covers four sessions that give a glimpse into the world of engineering.


STUDENTS WILL EXPERIENCE
- Mechanical Engineering
- Chemical Engineering
- Systems and Civil Engineering
- And much more....
