Health Screening Activities:

The School Health Consultant provides health screenings for students in the schools.  These services are provided annually upon request from the principal and are scheduled for each school.  For each health screening, if a student does not meet the necessary criteria, the School Health Consultant will send a notice to the parent(s) of the student, making a referral to the student’s provider for further evaluation.

Vision Screening: The School Health Consultant offers annual vision screening for students in grades kindergarten, 1, 3, and 5, or by special request for any other grades.

Dental Screening: The School Health Consultant offers dental screening annually to kindergarten students who do not have a Certificate of Dental Screening on file at the school, or by special request for any other students.
