During the year, I will be providing or assisting with the following screenings for various class levels per state regulations.

In September, hearing screenings will be performed by the audiologist , Dr. Emily Struve, as well as rescreens if needed.

Vision screenings will be performed by me before the end of the first semester.

Dental screenings will be performed by a dentist from Cowley Dental Outreach Program, usually in February, which is “ dental month”.

Parents will be contacted if any students fail any screening  and a referral will be sent home with the student or will be mailed. You may contact me with any questions.

In an effort to keep our students well, please do not send your child to school if they are sick.  Sick students are not able to learn well and expose other students to the illness.  If your child has a fever of 100 degrees or more, has vomiting and/or diarrhea or  has a constant persistent cough, they probably should stay at home.  Also if your student has a diffuse rash that is itching constantly or draining  or if they have red itchy eyes that have drainage, the nurse needs to check them before they attend class .  If you have any questions, you may call me at the school

I hope everyone had a great summer and I am looking forward to seeing the students.
