Screenings and Health Programs
Vision Screenings: Vision screenings are conducted by the Health Services staff for students in 1st, 3rd, and 5th grades. Students who have been prescribed glasses are not screened and will be referred to an eye care specialist. Vision screening does not take the place of a complete eye exam. The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends all children receive a complete medical eye exam prior to school enrollment and every 1-2 years after age five.
Hearing Screenings: Hearing screenings are conducted by the Health Services staff for students in KG and 1st grades. Contact the school office to request a consult with the Speech-Language Pathologist if you have a concern regarding your child’s hearing.
Delta Dental: Delta Dental of Idaho provides a biennial mobile dental clinic for KG, 1st, 2nd, 7th, and 8th graders. These clinics, performed by professional hygienists, include fluoride varnish and dental sealants.
SWDH Dental Program: A fluoride varnish program is provided for students in Kindergarten. A dental hygienist from the Southwest District Health Department (SWDH) visits elementary schools annually.
