Dear CHA Families,

We will be starting state mandated Hearing and Vision screenings. Cook Children’s Medical Center Eye Clinic will be at Chapel Hill Academy on Wednesday, October 4, 2023 and Thursday October 5, 2023 to vision screen. Any new students at CHA and those scholars in kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th grades should bring their glasses with them on these screening dates. Please be sure glasses are clean.

If all students are not able to be screened on this day, we will have an additional date for screening. Hearing screenings will take place with our nurse on Fridays beginning October 13th. Please make sure ears have been cleaned and cleared of wax buildup.

Our goal is to get the best possible and most accurate screening. If your scholar does not pass the first screening, a second screening will be conducted approximately two weeks following the initial screening. Any significant findings on your scholar's screening results will be sent home shortly afterward with a referral to a specialist.

Our nurse will also be conducting state mandated Acanthosis screenings for 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th graders. This screening entails a look at the back of the neck to check for any pigmentation or skin changes that may be indicative of pre-diabetes.

Should these be present, additional data such as height, weight, BMI and blood pressure will be checked. Any significant findings will also be sent home shortly afterward with a referral to your doctor for further assessment.

Returning CHA Kinder and 7th grade parents, students missing immunizations required for continued enrollment were notified before the end of last school year. Remember to provide us with updated records so your child’s return to CHA is not delayed. Students not in compliance with state immunization requirements will not be allowed to start school until vaccines are up to date. Please use the following link to view the requirements.
