A Letter to Parent's of Children in Grade 7 - Vision Screening

Please look for this letter being sent home with students today!!

September 17, 2014

 Dear Parents:

Vision Screening for Gr. 7 students will be carried out at your child’s school between September 29th to October 3rd.

This screening program is designed to uncover signs of any possible vision difficulty, which may interfere with school progress. It is not intended to be a substitute for vision examination performed by an Ophthalmologist/Optometrist. If you do not wish that your child participate in this no-cost vision screening please contact the school.

Children who are currently wearing glasses will not usually be screened. Parents of children who wear glasses will be receiving a form to take or send to their Ophthalmologist or Optometrist to assist the school in the best programming for their child.

If after the vision screening has been completed you receive a notice from the school requesting that you refer your child for a professional eye examination, please follow-up by making an appointment with an eye doctor (Ophthalmologist/Optometrist) of your choice. Ask the eye doctor to complete the form sent to you by the school and then return this completed form to the school.

If you require any further information please contact the school.

 Mr. A. Mead
