Please be aware that West Elementary will be conducting our annual Vision and Hearing Screenings for students in 1st, 3rd and 5th grades. We will also include kindergarten students who did not pass a vision or hearing screening during their kindergarten physical. Hearing screenings will take place on October 22nd. Vision Screenings will take place on October 25th. We hope that all students will participate in these important screenings however you may opt your child out of one or both screenings by calling the school nurse 828-488-2119 extension 5533, or sending a note to your child’s teacher. Thank you for helping keep our students healthy and ready to learn!
