Vision Screening for 1st, 3rd, and 5th Grade

Again this year, the Lions Club will be helping me with the vision screening process for 1st, 3rd, and 5th Grade.  The date for screening is Wednesday, October 31 and will be held in the morning.  Students must be screened wearing their glasses or contacts. Any student that does not pass with the trained Lions Club members, will be re-screened by me at a future date.  All students will bring home a vision screening report.  If you receive notification of a referral because your child did not pass the screening, please take the referral paper work with you to the eye doctor and return the completed report to me once your child’s vision is checked by the eye doctor.
