Vision, Hearing and Scoliosis Screenings

Nurse Hardy will start screenings for vision, hearing, and scoliosis Monday, March 8 through Friday March 19.

The screenings are done on an individual basis so that your child’s privacy is maintained and we will be socially distanced throughout the process. We will be taking the appropriate precautions by disinfecting the equipment between screenings. You will be informed if your child shows any degree of abnormality in his/her vision, spine or with any hearing concerns.

The procedure for scoliosis screening is simple. The child’s back is observed as s/he is upright and again while bent forward. To observe this condition, the child is asked to remove his/her shirt or blouse. Girls can wear a bra or an open-back swimsuit. Screening is conducted in private.

According to Arkansas State Regulations, the following screenings will be performed based on the scholar’s age.

7th Grade – Vision and Hearing
8th Grade – Vision, Hearing, and Scoliosis
All transfer scholars – Vision and Hearing

Traditional and Blended learning scholars will begin screening March 8th – March 12th.
Virtual learning scholars are welcomed to make appointments to come on campus
March 15th – March 19th ( Please email Nurse Hardy to schedule at laurahardy@haashall.org )
***Please note that screenings will not be performed on March 9, 16 or 17 due to standardized testing.
