Elementary School Health Screenings
Vision and Hearing
Vision and hearing screenings are done throughout the year for new students and all students in Kindergarten, 1st grade, 3rd grade, and 5th grade. I am always happy to do a vision and/or hearing screen on any student at the request of a parent or teacher.
At this time, only Fifth Grade girls are screened for scoliosis in the Fall. A parent letter with more information will be sent home closer to the screening time.
In addition I will do a screening for Acanthosis Nigricans (AN) at the same time as the vision/hearing screening for 1st, 3rd, and 5th grade students (a visual sign on the back of the neck which could indicate an early sign of Type 2 Diabetes).
