Vision and Hearing Screenings

District nurses will conduct vision and hearing screenings for all students. If a child does not pass the screening(s) a letter will be sent home with a referral for medical follow-up. Regardless of the results of the screening, if, at any time, you have concerns about your child's vision or hearing, a complete medical examination is recommended.

Please remember that vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision examination by an eye doctor. Your child is not required to undergo the vision screening if an optometrist or ophthalmologist has completed and signed a report indicating that an eye examination has been administered within the previous 12 months.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call District 101 nurse, Amber Knoll 708-485-4384.
