We will begin state mandated screenings for 7th grade students ONLY for vision and hearing starting next week. This process might take a few weeks to get through all students, so please be patient if we haven’t screened your student yet.
We will be screening all students in Athletics before school during their Athletics period on 11/3 and 11/4.
If your student wears glasses, please make sure they bring them to school as usual so they can be screened with these on. Let Nurse Jessica know if you have any questions. Thanks!
