愿景 & Hearing Screening

State law requires that children enrolled in Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th Grade must be screened for vision and hearing in the fall semester.

的 目的 of these screenings is to assist in early detection of vision and/or hearing impairment. Early detection can prevent the development of a physical dilemma that can affect a child’s ability to learn and thrive in school and at home.

Screenings will begin the week of  09/18/2023

的 screening procedure is simple. 的 school nursing staff has been trained and certified to check your child’s vision and hearing.  

Parents will be notified of the results of the screening if professional follow-up is necessary. This screening does not replace your child’s need for regular healthcare and check-ups. 

If you have any questions, please contact the campus clinic at (903) 473-2222 and enter the corresponding extension.
