Vision and Hearing Screenings
Hearing and Vision screenings are mandated by the state for all students receiving special education services, students new to the district, or teacher or parent referrals. Parents will be notified if there are any abnormal findings. These are only screenings and should never replace a thorough exam by your doctor. If your child already wears (or should be wearing) glasses or hearing aids, please let the school nurse know. Hearing and Vision Screenings will occur on September 7th and September 8th for the 2023-2024 school year. Rescreens will occur on September 19th, 2023.
