A Quick Note from Nurse Martin

Starting September 12 I will be doing hearing and vision screenings for PK, K, 1, 3, and 5th grades. If your child wears glasses, please be sure they are wearing them and bringing them to school, especially for screenings. If your child does not pass the initial screening they will be re-screened 2-3 weeks after their initial screening. You will only be contacted if your child does not pass the re-screen and needs a physician referral this will be around mid-late October.
