Annual Screening

Every pupil is weighed, measured and screened for visual acuity once each year. All pupils in kindergarten, grades 1, 2, 3, 7 and 11 are given a hearing test. Pupils in other grades who are known to have a hearing loss or show evidence of hearing difficulty will be tested. Pupils who demonstrate vision or hearing problems are referred for further follow-up.

All sixth and seventh grade students are screened for scoliosis by the school nurse. A second screening of students identified by the school nurse is performed by school physicians. Parents are notified if the school physician detects a curvature of the spine. Physical examinations are provided for students in kindergarten and grades 6 and 11 by school physicians for students who do not have one performed by their family physician.
