One of the functions of the school health program is to promote students' health through early identification and detection of any problems that may cause disability and /or interfere with learning. Screenings are conducted following Minnesota Department of health guidelines. These screenings are completed as a whole group or individually by referral.
Screening Programs may include:
• Hearing and Vision
• Color vision deficiency
• Blood Pressure
If a student fails on the first screening, they will be re-screened by the Licensed School Nurse. If a student fails the second time, a referral notice will be sent to the parent, encouraging a physician's visit. If a parent has a question or concern about their child's hearing or vision, please contact your Licensed School Nurse.
