New York State Department of Health Body Mass Index Survey:
The Students of Mount Vernon City School District have been mandated by New York State Department of Health to participate in a BMI (Body Mass Index) survey.
The BMI helps the doctor or nurse know if the student's weight is in a healthy range or is too high or too low.
The Health Services Department will be reporting information about our students’ weight status groups from the 2011-2012 school year to the New York State Department of Health.
Only summary information is sent; no names or information about individual students are sent.
**You may choose to have your child’s information excluded from this survey report. Please contact your school nurse or the Main Medical Health Services Office at 914-665-5186 to remove your child from the survey information reporting.**
