In accordance with Kansas laws, we will do screenings on all students for vision, hearing, and dental. If you prefer that your child not be screened, you must notify our office in writing of your wishes.
Vision and Hearing
Vision screening will be done on all students this year . Hearing screenings will be done on all K,1,2,3,5,7,9,11 students and any student new to our district. I am also glad to screen any student whose parent and/or teacher has a concern and desires screening. If a student fails the screening, a referral is sent home to the parent asking that the child be taken to an optometrist or ophthalmologist for a vision exam or a doctor for further evaluation of hearing. This form, along with the doctor’s findings, should be returned to me. If you need assistance for an exam, glasses, or hearing devices for your child, PLEASE contact the school nurse.
Dental screens will be done annually on all students starting the week of December 8th (unless the parent signs an opt out form), consent for treatment will be sent home in November, notifications will be sent home with the findings and recommendations. Additional information will come later regarding these Screenings and Treatment options. If you are unable to afford an exam for further dental treatment, PLEASE contact the school nurse.
