Health ScreeningsThe Indiana State Department of Health mandates health screenings at the following grade levels:
- Vision: Grades 1, 3, 5, and 8 (1st grade students have MCT screening done by volunteer Optometrists)
- Hearing: Grade 1, 4, 7, and 10
Screenings are also done if the parent and/or teacher request it. School nurses perform the screenings. The screening is not a diagnostic tool; it simply indicates that further medical evaluation is needed. If you receive a screening referral for your child, follow up with his/her physician. Please be sure to notify the nurse of the results so we are aware of any changes in their health status. Parents or legal guardians who have a religious objection to these screenings should contact the school nurse.
