Hearing & Vision Screening - December 10

As mandated by Illinois State law, annual vision and hearing screening will be conducted at Edison School on Monday, December 10, 2018.

The following grade levels / students will be screened:

  • KINDERGARTEN = VISION & HEARING
  • FIRST GRADE = HEARING only         
  • SECOND GRADE = VISION & HEARING
  • THIRD GRADE = HEARING only
  • ALL SPECIAL EDUCATION STUDENTS, TRANSFER STUDENTS & TEACHER REFERRALS = VISION & HEARING

Vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision evaluation by and eye doctor. Your student 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 and that evaluation is on file at the school.  If a vision examination report is not on file at the school, then your student in the mandated group will be tested.

Any student that does not pass the initial vision and or hearing screening is automatically re-screened on Thursday December 20.  If the student does not pass the re-screen parents/guardians will be notified by mail.

GLASSES:  If your student already wears glasses, please have them bring their glasses to school on testing day.

If you have any questions regarding the above information, please contact me.

 

Thank you,

Dorothy Hamby, RN

School Nurse
