Our annual vision screening will be held at school on Wednesday, October 27th beginning at 8:00 a.m. This will include a screening of all 8th grade students. We encourage you to help your student remember to have their glasses/contacts at school for this screening. Parents and education staff cannot always tell when a child has trouble seeing. Observation alone isn’t enough. This is why implementing evidence-based vision screening throughout childhood is important. Please contact the school nursing with any questions or concerns.
