Vision and Hearing Screenings
Vision and hearing screenings will be given each year to students in grades 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th. These screenings are typically conducted in September/October.
Parents/guardians will receive a referral letter advising them to consult a physician should a screening indicate a vision or hearing concern.
Scoliosis screenings are done by the school nurse upon parent request.
Have A Heart Fund
As a result of screenings (vision, hearing or scoliosis) if there is a financial hardship in following through with the referral, parents/guardians may access the Have A Heart Fund that is designed to help parents with these types of expenses where no other fund is available to them (i.e., insurance, social services, etc.)
