Dear Plantersville Summer Academy Parents,
Healthy Learners is excited to collaborate with The Village Group to provide vision and dental screenings to students enrolled in PSA this summer. The purpose of these screenings is to identify potential health concerns which may impact your child’s ability to succeed academically. Vision and dental problems have been identified as two of the most common health barriers to learning (HBLs). Identifying and addressing these HBLs is critical for students to succeed in school. Vison screenings will be performed using a SPOT Vision Screener, a hand-held device (much like a camera) that takes a “picture” and gives a reading of possible vison problems. Dental screenings will be performed by visual exam using a tongue depressor. Parents will be notified of screening results requiring appropriate follow up with dental care and vision care providers. Healthy Learners will assist parents who so choose with scheduling appointments and transportation of students to the appointments if needed.
If you prefer your student NOT PARTICIPATE in these screenings, please sign and return this form.
