Vision and Hearing Screen for Elementary Students

Your Dorothy Simon or Jean McNair child may be given vision and hearing screenings this school year 2018-19. Vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision evaluation by an eye doctor. You will be notified if your child does not pass the screening. If your child passed, this screening should not replace an eye appointment with an eye doctor.

Food allergies are a growing concern in schools across America.

In fact, food allergies claim over 200 lives and are responsible for over 30,000 emergency room visits each year.
