SCREENINGS:


Hearing, vision and scoliosis screening is required by the state of New York to be done for students in pre-K through 8th grades and all new students to the district within 6 months of admission to school.

Distance and near vision acuity are required in grades Pre K or K, 1, 3, 5, 7, and 11.

Hearing screening utilizing pure tone testing is required for new entrants within 6 months of admission to school and in grades Pre K or K, 1, 3, 5, 7, and 11.
Scoliosis screening is required in grades 5 and 7 for girls and grade 9 for boys.


If your child fails either the vision, hearing or scoliosis screening completed at school, paperwork will be sent home. Please take your child to the doctor to see if there is a problem and return the paperwork to the school nurse. For hearing problems, a visit to the child’s regular doctor would be the first step; that doctor may refer your child to a specialist. Vision problems will require a visit to an ophthalmologist or optometrist. If help is needed, please contact your school nurse.

 If you have any questions, please contact the nurse's office at 631-324-0144 or email lburr@springsschool.org or dgherardi@springsschool.org.

A partir del 1/31/21, las escuelas no pueden aceptar el examen de salud si no está en el formulario requerido o en el registro de salud requerido equivalente.

If your child will need medication for the 2021-22 school year, new orders are required and medication will need to be dropped off at the start of the new school year. Please check the website for the necessary medication form that needs to be completed by your child's physician.
