Notes from the Office 


        
Keep an eye out for our bi-monthly school Newsletter and Calendar.  We send them home with your students, but you may also get new ones from the office, or you can also find a link to the calendars here on the website. 

Whenever your student is absent from school, please call or send a note so that we can keep our records accurate.

If you will be picking your students up early or dropping them off late, please be sure to call the office to let us know.

If your student rides a bus, needs to ride a DIFFERENT BUS, or is being picked up instead of riding their normal bus, PLEASE make sure that you call in advance and let us know by 3:00 p.m.  Bus notes are delivered at that time, and we need to ensure that your student gets on the right bus to get home.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to stop by the office and ask!

Vision Screenings and Comprehensive Eye Exams Teresa Wright, School Nurse

Because 89% of learning is visual and because up to 25% of children have vision problems , early detection and treatment in children is important. 10% of children have a significant need for eyeglasses to clear blurred vision. 15% suffer from poor visual skills. Inadequate or poor vision may delay the development of important vision-related learning.

Your child’s eyes are constantly in use in the classroom and at play. Near and distance vision, binocular coordination, eye movement and focusing skills, peripheral awareness and eye/hand coordination are all critical and if lacking or absent, then your child will have to work harder.

Eye doctors recommend that a child should have their first eye exam at six months of age. The child will be examined for vision problem warning signs, eyes turning inward or outward, and other focusing problems. Some of these warning signs are most responsive to treatment if diagnosed by the age of 3. At age 5, children should be examined to determine their readiness of vision skills for school.

School vision screenings do not substitute for a comprehensive vision examination. Optometrists and ophthalmologists can provide glasses, needed medications, low vision rehabilitation and vision therapy services. They are trained to provide a thorough examination of your child’s eyes even if the child has yet to develop communication skills, cooperates poorly during the exam or is unable to pay attention to an eye chart.

Please provide your School Nurse a copy of the report of any comprehensive exams. These will be kept in your child’s confidential health folder.
