Any child or parent of a child who lives or goes to public or private school or who is homeschooled may participate.

The 17th annual Morgan County Back-to-School Health Fair will be held Saturday, Aug. 5, at the Morgan County R-II School in Versailles.

More than 700 children will be screened and provided school supplies.

The fair focuses on school readiness through critical health screenings that enable families to address health issues that might prohibit school attendance or prevent optimum participation or performance in their classes.

Any child or parent of a child who lives or goes to public or private school or who is homeschooled may participate.

There are no income guidelines. Screenings are completed by medical and community volunteers.

Children will be screened for hearing, dental, scoliosis, blood pressure/heart rate, height, weight, immunizations, vision and head checks. Lice treatment is provided for all family members if needed.
