Vision and Hearing Screening
Following the guidelines set forth by the Minnesota Department of Health, the following grade levels will be screened:
Kindergarten – hearing
1st grade –vision/hearing (color vision-boys only)
2nd grade – hearing
3rd grade – vision/hearing
5th grade – vision/hearing
7th grade – vision/hearing
10th grade – vision/hearing
Students newly enrolled at Barnum – vision/hearing
Students who do not pass their vision or hearing will be re-screened 1-3 weeks following the initial screening. If they do not pass the re-screening, a referral letter will be sent out to the parents recommending follow-up care by your health care provider.
I would like to extend a special thank you to the parents that are volunteering their time to screen our students at the elementary and to the NHS students that help at the high school!! We appreciate your help!
