Vision and Hearing Screenings


Vision and hearing screenings will be done in November. Connecticut state law requires that all students enrolled in grades K, 1 and 3-5 undergo yearly vision and hearing screenings. The purpose of the program is to identify possible problems as early as possible. Early detection and intervention may prevent educational implications. If a problem is suspected, the student will be re-checked at a second screening. If further consultation is recommended, parents will be notified of the findings and will be asked to seek further evaluation from their own physician. If you receive a referral for your child, please schedule an appointment as soon as possible and have the physician complete the back of the referral form and return it to the school nurse.
