• School Health Screenings

    Per Minnesota Department of Health guidelines, students participate in specific grade-level health screenings. Students also receive vision and/or hearing screening upon request from their parent/guardian or if their teacher suspects that there may be a vision or hearing concern that is affecting the student's ability to learn.

    If at any time you question your child's vision and/or hearing, please feel free to contact the Health Services team to request a health office screening.

If the student fails the second screening, a referral letter or email outlining the findings will be sent to parents recommending follow-up with a medical professional
