Screenings At School
During each school year, the school nurses conduct health screenings of students per state law mandates. The health screenings include the following:
- Vision screening for distance acuity in grades Pre-K or Kindergarten, 1, 3, 5, 7 and 11.
- Hearing screening for all students new to the district and in grades Pre-K or Kindergarten, 1, 3, 5, 7 and 11.
- Scoliosis screening (curvature of the spine) for students in grades 5 and 7 for girls and grade 9 for boys.
- Students new to the district will be screened for vision (near and far), hearing & color perception.
Parents/guardians are notified of any abnormalities and are asked to follow up with the family physician.
