Heart Health Screening @ KW on February 8

King’s Way is excited to announce that we will be offering a FREE health screening day at our school on Friday, February 8th, for all students ages 12-18. Students must be 12 years old by February 8 to participate. This screening will include a 12-lead EKG (electrocardiogram), height/weight, blood pressure check and scoliosis screening.
Youth typically do not receive an EKG at routine well-child checks or during sports physicals, so this is a unique healthcare opportunity to get a free baseline EKG.  These painless, noninvasive cardiac screenings are done by PlaySmart, a program offered by Providence Heart and Vascular Institute. Thanks to these screenings more than 22,000 hearts have been screened in our area over the past 5 years, identifying 7% (over 1,200) youth needing further follow-up and treatment. For more information, please visit their website: www.playsmartgetscreened.org
To sign up please email Nurse@kwcs.org and include completed forms by February 1st.
Forms include:
  • Agreement to Participate
  • Health Questionnaire
  • Scoliosis Consent

All forms must be completed to take advantage of this great opportunity. Our school nurses are available to answer any questions you might have at Nurse@kwcs.org.
