Vision and Hearing Screenings

Vision and hearing screenings will be conducted by the nurses in district 27 who are certified by the state of Illinois. Vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision evaluation by an eye doctor. Any student suspected by a parent, guardian or teacher of having a vision or hearing problem may also be referred for testing. Please contact the nurse’s office if you have any questions or concern
