SCREENINGS

VISION
*During the month of September, middle school students in grades 5 and 6 will have their vision screened. If they fail, those students will be re-tested. If they fail a second time, a letter will be sent home advising parents of the failures.

HEARING
*In October, hearing screenings will take place for students in grade 5. The same procedure will be followed as above, where a letter will be sent home notifying parents of failures after the second screening.

SCOLIOSIS
