BrightBytes Parent Survey
Dear Parents

District 105 is working with BrightBytes to gather information on how our teachers, parents and students use technology. Please complete a five minute survey.  The survey can be done on your smart phone or any device with Internet.

Click on the school below that corresponds with your child’s school. If you have multiple students at the SAME school, please complete only one survey for that school. If you have students at multiple different schools (e.g. Gurrie and Hodgkins, then please complete one survey at each school (e.g. Gurrie and Hodgkins).

Thank you for your valuable input!

Vision & Hearing Screenings
2016-2017 Vision and Hearing Screening
During the months of September through January, the SD 105 nurses will be conducting the annual vision and hearing screenings. These screenings are State mandated with the goal of finding children who may need a more comprehensive doctor’s eye and/or ear examination. They are not meant to diagnose eye or ear problems, and screeners cannot tell you if students will need glasses. Vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision evaluation by an eye doctor.

As in previous years, screening will be done for the following students:
  • Preschool
  • Kindergarten
  • First grade
  • Second grade
  • Third grade
  • Eighth grade
  • New students to D105
  • All students receiving special education services
  • Any parent/teacher requests (please notify nurse prior to screening date)
Please check the District Activity Calendar for screening dates at each school. The screening process works in several steps. First, students have an initial screening. If the student passes, their screening is complete. If the student fails, a second screening (or rescreening) takes place about two weeks from the date of the first. This is done in accordance with Illinois Department of Public Health screening regulations and in order to account for students who may not have understood instructions, had temporary eye or ear concerns, and to prevent unnecessary referrals for doctor visits. You will be notified only if your student fails the vision and/or hearing rescreenings. This will be done through a letter home that will recommend that a doctor check the student’s vision and/or hearing. A form for the doctor to fill out will also be included. This form should be turned in to the school nurses’ office after it is completed. Students who have glasses are not screened for vision, but will be referred if they have not seen an eye doctor within the past 2 years or if their glasses are broken, scratched, or not fitting well. Please remember to have your child wear his or her glasses/contacts on their scheduled day. Your child is not required to undergo vision screening if an optometrist or ophthalmologist (vision) or physician/ear, nose, and throat specialist (hearing) has completed and signed a report form indicating that an examination has been administered within the previous 12 months and this is turned into school.

Please contact the school nurse’s office if you have any questions.

Thank you!
