*Grades K-3, and Gr 5: Vision Screening Day is Tuesday 10-30-2018

For Grades K-3, and 5 (Grades 4 and 6 can be screened later, upon referral), vision screening will be Tuesday, October 30th starting at​ ​10:20 AM. Please have your student bring/wear their glasses/vision correction for the screening.

An automated screening tool checks for near and far vision needed for schooling purposes. Students look at the nose of a face drawn on a screen,​ and we get a message on the machine. If the machine says “refer to an Ophthalmologist or Optometrist”, your student will bring a notice home. W​e don’t get specific​s about what the problem is --- only whether or not they need a follow up with a professional about whether they ​may ​need glasses​, a new glasses prescription​,​ or another intervention.
