Vision and Hearing Screening
From BMS Nurse - Mrs. Harweger
Ms NurseThat time of year is fast approaching. Early identification of vision and hearing difficulties is of extreme importance to academic success. Vision and hearing screening here at BMS will start in late October. Please contact the school nurse with any questions.

Vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision evaluation by an eye doctor. Your child is not required to undergo this vision screening if an optometrist or ophthalmologist has completed and signed a report form indicating that an examination has been administered within the previous 12 months.

You will be notified if your child does not pass the screenings.
