Lead Testing Requirement for Students entering Kindergarten in the 18-19 School
The Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD) recently
imposed regulations requiring schools to collect proof that students entering
Kindergarten have been tested for lead exposure. Lead is a neurotoxin that can
have irreversible effects on your child’s health, IQ & ability to
learn. Your child could encounter
exposure from many different sources, including the public water supply, as
happened in Flint, Michigan. Please remember to ask your Health Care Provider
to include the dates of lead testing when completing school forms. If your
Kindergarten age child has not previously had lead testing, it is recommended
that he or she get tested as soon as possible. The ACHD provides this test to
un- or underinsured families. Please refer to the brochure in the Registration Packet,
or you may find it posted on the Nursing Services section of the district’s
website. For any concerns or questions, please contact your school nurse.
