A message from the LCSD School Health Services regarding upcoming screenings

Dear Parent/Guardian:

The district’s School Health Services program supports your student’s academic success by promoting health in the school setting.  One way that we provide care for your student is by performing the health screenings as mandated by the State of New York.

The following screenings will be required or completed at school over the next several months:

Vision

  • Distance and near acuity for all newly entering students and students in Pre-K or Kindergarten, Grades 1, 3, 5, 7, and 11.
  • Color perception screening for all newly entering students and those have never been tested.

Hearing

  • Hearing screening for all newly entering students and students in Pre-K or Kindergarten, Grades 1, 3, 5, 7, and 11.

Scoliosis

  • Scoliosis (spinal curvature) screening for all girls in grades 5 and 7, and boys in grade 9.

A letter will be sent home if your student needs follow-up with your healthcare provider.  Please call the school’s Health Office if you have any questions or concerns.
