Health Screenings

To assure optimal student performance in school, vision, hearing, and dental screenings are conducted.

 

Vision Screenings 
Mass vision screens are conducted for 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th grades.  Vision is also screened based on referral by teachers or parents.  If a student is found to be outside the acceptable range for a screening, a letter will be sent home with the results of the screening and any recommendations for followup.
Hearing Screenings
Hearing screens are conducted based on referral by teachers or parents.  If a student is found to be outside the acceptable range for a screening, a letter will be sent home with the results of the screening and any recommendations for followup.
Dental Screenings
Elementary schools are visited by Mission Children’s Hospital Dental Outreach Program’s
ToothBus.  Pre-K, Middle, and High School are visited by Smile NC Mobile Dentists.  These programs require parent/guardian permission in order for students to participate.  Permission slips will be sent home with students prior to event.
 

To opt out of any health screening, please contact your child’s school nurse.
