BFA will conduct our annual hearing and vision screenings during school hours on Tuesday, Jan. 31, and Wednesday, Feb. 1. Hearing and vision impact learning, so it’s essential 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 BFA, plus any referrals. Colorado Department of Education Standards for hearing and vision are available online. 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.

You will receive a letter only if your student does not pass the screening. Students with concerns should be evaluated by a healthcare 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.

This year, the school has contracted with Tender Care Consulting, LLC, for the screenings. We need parent volunteers to help with the screenings, as well as supply a light breakfast/lunch for the staff and volunteers. If you are interested, it’s a great way to get your volunteer hours!

Please contact Mrs. Paulson in the Health Room if you have questions or concerns about your student.
