Hearing & Vision Screenings
All students in Special Education and 9th grade will have their hearing checked annually. Other students may have their hearing checked as the need arises. Parents/guardians who have concerns about a student’s hearing should contact the School Nurse. If your student does not pass their screening, a referral letter will be mailed to the parent/guardian with information and instructions to assist you in arranging an examination by a hearing specialist. Please notify the School Nurse if a student requires a hearing aid or if you wish to opt-out of screening.
