It is our hope and desire that all students are able to learn without any barriers. Often times, visual and/or hearing impairment is the barrier for a child but with proper screenings and follow-up, all students can be successful in school.
All routine screenings performed for Republic students by the health services staff can be declined by a parent/guardian. Please make contact with your child's building nurse if you wish to decline or opt-out of this service. Screenings will begin shortly after school starts and can often take weeks to months in order to reach all students that are scheduled for the current year. Each building nurse will have a tentative schedule of screening dates for your child's building.
