Vision & Hearing: ALL students in Kindergarten, 2nd grade, 5th grade, 8th grade and 10th grade are screened in the fall. Preschool students are screened throughout the year. The screening is a generic non-diagnostic assessment meant to detect problems with near vision, distance vision, or hearing difficulties. If a problem is detected, students will be referred for further care. If you are unable to provide follow-up for your child, please contact your school's health office. Any student is eligible for screening upon request. Color vision (boys only) screening is conducted in second grade.
Scoliosis screening (curvature of the spine): is completed for 7th grade girls and 8th grade boys in January or February. If any problems are detected, parents will be advised to follow up with their child's doctor.
