Dear Parents,

     Nebo School District offers free hearing screenings for all students in Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, and 6th grade.  Your child will receive this screening at Sierra Bonita on Wednesday September 6th. It takes about 3-5 minutes.

     If for any reason your child does not pass this screening, he/she will be rescreened two weeks later. Often a child fails to pass the first screening due to fluid in ears, congestion, excessive ear wax, etc. This is why we rescreen them. Many children who fail the first screening go on to pass the second screening.

     If, however, your child does not pass the second screening we will let you know. If this is the case, it is recommended that your child receive a full evaluation, which is offered free of charge through the district.

     If for any reason you would prefer your child’s hearing NOT be screened, please return the bottom portion of this form to your child’s teacher before September 6th.  If you have any questions, please contact us. Thank you!
