Can You Read This?

Do you know if your child has vision problems? Maybe he or she has a hard time reading but really the problem is poor vision. You can find out by participating in a free screening with the school nurse. Please read THIS VISION SCREENING permission slip carefully. The screening does not replace a full eye check up but it will help identify problems before they become worse. Thank to the Lions Club for their faithful participation in vision issues like this. Thanks also the great nursing staff at CCS who do so much to care for the health of all in the building.
