Vision and Hearing Screening
In accordance with state guidelines, students are screened at selected grade levels and by teacher referral for vision and hearing. Appropriate referrals are then made to the parent/guardian.
Vision and hearing screenings are conducted in the schools in the fall for the following grades: PreK, K, 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 9 and all students new to the district.
Dental care in early childhood is essential to promote familiarity with professional dental services, prevent dental decay and connect children and parents to regular dental resources in their community. Dental Aid and Boulder Valley School District have partnered to provide dental screenings, education, cleanings, sealants, fluoride treatment and/or temporary filings to prevent and treat dental cavities.
In addition to screenings, programs are available to assist with the cost of follow-up dental services for students without health insurance. For additional information contact the School Medicaid Program office at: 720-561-5571
BVSD recommends that all students follow the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines to maintain optimal health, including physicals and screenings; and that all those new to the area receive a physical examination and establish care with a local healthcare provider.
- A physical exam is required for enrollment in a preschool program.
- A physical is also required every 365 days for students participating in athletics.
