Heart Screening

Four Points Falcons,

We will offer the free heart screenings on April 18th during your child's P.E. and Athletic classes. Please return the consent form by April 13th!

Leander ISD has received a grant from Who We Play For to provide a free ECG test to all Leander ISD athletes. A quick painless non-invasive test that places electrodes on the chest around the heart to look at electrical signals of the heart to possibly detect life threatening conditions. Please see the attached Frequently Ask Questions flyer further details on how the screening process works.  

If your son or daughter is in 6th grade and going into athletics next year they too can take this test during their PE class. Athletes NOT in the athletic period and NOT in a PE class will test before school (8am) or immediately after school. Testing will take place in the athletics/PE area.

The only requirement is that parents sign and return the attached permission form. If you would like to have your child screened the parent consents form will need to be returned to their coach by April 13th.  If your child is not in P.E. or athletics they should return the consent form to Coach Rubio (female students) or Coach Jones (male students).   If you would like to assist with the heart screenings on April 18th please fill out the attached parent volunteer form and return.
