Vision and Hearing Screenings

Every year hearing and vision screenings are conducted on students in our schools as required by Connecticut General Statutes for grades K-5. Grade 6 screenings are completed by the Medical Provider during the physical exam. If a vision or hearing problem is suspected, the student will be rechecked at a second screening. If further consultation is recommended, parents will be notified in writing of the findings and will be asked to seek further medical evaluation. If you have any questions concerning the screenings, please contact the school nurse.

Scoliosis Screening

The State of Connecticut mandates that school nurses conduct postural screenings for female students in grades 5 and 7 and male students in grade 8. School nurses will be performing this screening during the months of March and April. The purpose of this program is to recognize the signs of spinal curvature at its earliest stages so that the need for treatment can be determined.

If further consultation is recommended, parents will be notified of the findings and will be asked to seek further evaluation from their own physician.
