BFA will conduct our annual hearing and vision screenings at school on Monday, Jan. 31, and Tuesday, Feb. 1. Hearing and vision impact learning, so it’s important to conduct screenings, and Colorado law (C.R.S. 22-1-116) states that students in grades K, 1, 2, 3, 5, 7 and 9 should be tested for sight and hearing. We also screen students that are new to the district as well as any referrals. It is important to note that this is a screening, not a complete exam. If your student wears prescription glasses or contacts, it is necessary that he/she wear them during the screening. 
 
This year, the school has contracted with Tender Care Consulting, LLC, for the screenings. We also need parent volunteers to help. If you are interested, it’s a great way to get your volunteer hours! See the SignUpGenius for details.
 
You will receive a letter if your student does not pass the screening. Students with concerns should be evaluated by a health care professional. Please take the letter to your appointment and have the provider complete the bottom of the form, and return it to your school’s health office.
 
Colorado Department of Education Standards for hearing and vision are available online.
 
Please contact Mrs. DeBellis in the Health Room if you have questions or concerns about your student
