7th grade screening

Posted January 24, 2023

Hello Bear Valley Families,
This is a communication about upcoming health screenings at our school. As you may know, Denver Public Schools provides free vision and hearing screenings for all 7th graders. Bear Valley will host our screening dates on Feb 6th and 7th during the school day

The screenings are NOT an assessment or an evaluation and do NOT replace professional exams. School screening is considered best practice to identify students who may be at risk for health concerns affecting the student’s ability to learn, and who may need extra support to reach academic benchmarks. Your student may be due to receive screenings in the following areas:

Vision and Hearing

Parents/guardians of students who do not have optimal vision or hearing results will be notified.
Resources may be available for DPS enrolled students.

You must notify your school nurse directly should you wish to REFUSE/OPT OUT of any of the free screenings for your student. Please email Nurse Katie at kathryn_stevenson@dpsk12.net if you have any questions or would like to opt out.

Thank you for your assistance as we work together to educate and support your student!

Nurse Katie
