Student Vision Screenings
Posted 02/22/2016 03:07PM

The Wethersfield Public School District Nurses will be collaborating with members from the Lion’s Club to perform CT state mandated vision screenings on all children in Pre­K through 6th grade on selected dates during the first 2 weeks of March. Corpus Christi school will screen Pre­K through Grade 2. Signed consent forms are required for all students in the (3) year and (4) old Pre­K programs located at Webb and Corpus Christi.

 

The schedule is as follows:

Webb 3/1/2016

Highcrest 3/2/2016

Emerson Williams 3/3/2016

Hanmer 3/4/2016

Corpus Christi 3/7/2016

Charles Wright 3/11/2016

 

The screening is performed by a photographic process from a distance of three feet. No physical contact is made with the child and no eye drops are administered. This technique provides a comprehensive screening to detect the presence of several eye disorders. A copy of the screening results will be sent home with the student. Should the screening indicate any abnormality, a referral will be provided requesting a complete eye examination . Follow­up care will be the responsibility of the parent. If you have any questions please contact your School Nurse . Thank you for your attention to this matter.
