Universal Screenings for 2018-2019

The health screening components will be completed at DSA for 7th and 9th graders on:  February 25, 26, & 27, 2019

YOU MUST NOTIFY YOUR SCHOOL NURSE DIRECTLY SHOULD YOU WISH TO REFUSE ANY OF THE SCREENINGS FOR YOUR STUDENT.

Denver Public Schools provides free vision, hearing, dental, and BMI screenings for all students in identified grades (Early Childhood Education, Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 7th, and 9th).

The screenings are NOT an assessment or an evaluation and do NOT replace professional exams. Mass screening is considered best practice to identify students who may be at risk for health concerns affecting the student’s ability to learn, and who may need extra supports to reach academic benchmarks.

Your student will receive screenings in the following areas:

Vision, Hearing, Dental and BMI (Height & Weight)

YOU MUST NOTIFY YOUR SCHOOL NURSE DIRECTLY SHOULD YOU WISH TO REFUSE ANY OF THE SCREENINGS FOR YOUR STUDENT.

The health screening components will be completed at your child’s school on:

Dates: February 25, 26, & 27, 2019

Please contact your school nurse for any questions or concerns about the health screenings.  Parents/guardians of students who were absent or who did not have optimal hearing, vision or dental screening will be notified in writing regarding the results.   

Thank you for your assistance as we work together to educate and support your student!
