School Screenings

The district’s School Health Services program supports your student’s academic success by promoting health in the school setting. One way we provide care for your student is by performing health screenings as mandated by the State of New York.

During the school year, the following screenings will be required or completed at school:

Vision

  • Distance acuity for all newly entering students and students in grades 7 and 10.
  • Near vision acuity and color perception screening for all newly entering students.

Hearing

  • Hearing screening for all newly entering students and students in grades 7 and 10.

Scoliosis

  • Scoliosis (spinal curvature) screening for all students in Grades 7-9.

A letter will be sent home if there are any findings on the screening done at school that would cause concern or need medical follow-up. Please call the school’s Health Office if you have any questions or concerns.
