During the next couple of months, the school nurses will be conducting state mandated vision and hearing screenings. Exceptions will be made for those students already under a doctor's care who wear glasses. "Vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision evaluation by an eye doctor. Your child is not required to undergo this vision screening if an optometrist or ophthalmologist has completed and signed a report form indicating that an examination has been administered within the previous 12 months." (Section 27-8.1 of the School Code). If your child fails the screening process, you will receive written and phone notification and follow up with a physician will be recommended.
