FAMU DRS and FAMU’s School of Nursing Presents... Vision & Hearing Screenings

September 25th Vision & Hearing Screenings CANCELED ----- ----- ----- FAMU DRS is collaborating with the FAMU School of Nursing for our annual vision and hearing screenings. We would like to offer an opportunity for parents to bring their students to the school for these screeners. Vision and hearing screenings are not only required by the state of Florida, but also very important in early diagnosis of potential barriers in a student’s ability to learn and grow! If you have a student in the designated grade levels listed below, and you would like for your child to be screened, please adhere to the following procedures: - Parents will enter in their vehicles on the Orange Avenue side of the school and proceed past the cafeteria to the back loop behind the secondary buildings. - Parents are asked to stay in their vehicles and in the car line while screenings are being completed. - FAMU Nursing will greet students in the vehicle line, at which time they will take temperatures and ensure students are wearing mask coverings. - FAMU Nursing will escort students into the designated areas of the school. - After the vision and hearing screenings are completed, students will be escorted back to their vehicles in the car line. If you wish to bring your student for vision and hearing screenings, please see the below dates and time ranges for the required grade levels.
