Vision Screening

Vision Screenings
Vision Screenings will be conducted annually for ALL students in KINDERGARTEN thru GRADE 12. To get the most accurate results, students who wear glasses or contact lens are encouraged to wear their most current prescription on the day of screening. Parents will be notified if the child's vision should be followed by by a private health care provider.
The Pennsylvania Public School Code requires health screenings for all school children specific to their grade level. All students in the GNA School District will be provided these screenings in a private and confidential manner. Registered nurse's at the school your child attends will perform the screenings. Parents will be notified if their child fails the school screening with the recommendation for a follow-up by your family physician. All school screenings will be provided free of charge; however, the cost of any private screenings will be the responsibility of the parent/guardian. At the GNA High School, a schedule of these health screenings will be on the calendar posted on the nurse's website.
