Elementary School Health Screening Starts October 14h: Healthy Children Learn Better!
This consists of height/weight, vision and hearing testing. If your child wears glasses, please make sure they have them at school the day of screening. Students who are absent when their classes are scheduled will be individually screened at a later date. In cases where referral is needed, a letter will be email to the parents the student. It will also include a form with the student’s test results for the physician or other follow-up care provider to fill out. These forms should be completed and then returned to the school health office once the student has been seen.
If parents do not wish to have their children screened, they should notify the Health Office prior to the scheduled date of screening. Health screening is done privately and the results will be kept in your child’s school health record. The purpose of this screening program is to address the need to reduce the illness and associated academic failure from vision and/or hearing defects through early detection, referral and intervention, to give you information about your child’s health and well-being, and to increase community awareness of healthy eating and active living.
