All parents whose students who fail the second screen will be notified with a request to have your child’s hearing tested by a doctor. Those who pass will not be notified. All results will be submitted to the school nurse. If you would rather not have your child’s hearing tested please write a note to the school and address it to Mrs. Apple and we will not screen your child's hearing.
