Washington State law (WAC 246-760) requires schools to conduct auditory and visual screenings of children each year. All students in kindergarten through third grade, fifth and seventh grade are screened. If your child is not scheduled to be screened this year, you may request a screening if you have concerns by contacting your child’s teacher or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org including your child’s name, school, grade level and teacher.
Parents who DO NOT want their child screened for either vision and/or hearing will need to send a letter to their child’s school each year indicating their child is to be excluded. Please contact the Health Services office at 360-473-1073 if you have any questions. Additional information regarding the vision and hearing screening process is available here.
