The State of California mandates vision and hearing screening for students in public school. The screening for your middle school student will be conducted on Thursday March 21, 2019 by nurses. The exam consists of visual inspection of the eye, along with a test for acuity. Hearing testing consists of your child wearing headphones, where tones are presented, and your child will raise his/her hand.Parents will be notified by mail if their child’s vision or hearing screen shows a need for further medical evaluation. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s school and a district nurse can be contacted. Should you decide that you DO NOT wish to have your child participate in the above screening; a written note by a parent/guardian will be required to be on file. Please give the note to the school’s health clerk.
