School Screenings

The Penfield School District's School Health Services program supports your student's academic success by promoting health in the school setting. One way that we provide care for your student is by performing the health screenings as mandated by the State of New York. During this school year, the following screenings will be required or completed at school:

  • Vision
    • Distance acuity for all newly entering students and students in Kindergarten, Grades 1, 2, 3, 5, 7 and 10.
    • Near vision acuity and color perception screening for all newly entering students.
  • Hearing
    • Hearing screening for all newly entering students and students in Kindergarten, Grades 1, 3, 5, 7 and 10.
  • Scoliosis
