Vision and Hearing Services are mandated by the State of Illinois. As such, a vision and hearing screening program is in place within the district. Annual screenings are done on the following schedule.
Hearing: Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade
Vision: Pre-K, Kindergarten, 2nd, and 8th grade
If a student does not pass the vision or hearing screening, we send a notice home to the parent(s) recommending that the child be seen by a doctor. This does not mean your child definitely needs glasses or has any hearing problems. These are just screenings.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the vision or hearing of a student, please contact the nurse at your school.
