FREE Heart Screening Program offered to 9th Graders @ WHS (Class of 2020)


For the eighth consecutive year, Waldwick High School and the Sean Fisher Memorial Foundation have teamed up to promote an educational screening program on healthy lifestyle.

The screening program is offered at no cost to the Freshman Class ONLY and this year will take place at Eastwick College in Ramsey, NJ on March 24 or March 31. Students will be bused to Eastwick College, where they have all of the equipment necessary to perform the screenings. Once we have the scheduled finalized, all parents will be notified of the time and date of their child's screening.


Screening includes:  blood pressure, electrocardiogram (EKG) and Echocardiogram

In order for a freshman to take advantage of this opportunity, two forms must be filled out and returned to the WHS Main Office by March 10, 2017.  Screenings will be scheduled by the school and will be by appointment only.
