Vision and Hearing Screening

Vision and Hearing Screening

Each year in Northshore schools, students in grades Kindergarten, 1, 2, 3, 5, and 7 receive hearing and vision screenings.

Lockwood is currently scheduled for vision and hearing screenings on September 28th. If you would like to exempt your child from either of these health screenings, please contact the school nurse (Nurse Trina at or 425-408-5806). 

It is important to understand that these are basic screenings and are designed to identify students who may require further testing. They are not intended to replace regular exams by qualified health care providers. A student who does not pass any screening will be rechecked in a few weeks, and you will be notified only if there are concerns after the second screening. 

If your child wears glasses or contact lenses for distance or near vision, please be sure they have them on the screening day

If your child has a hearing loss and is being followed by a healthcare provider or specialist and you do not wish for them to participate in the screening, please let the school nurse know. If you have concerns about hearing loss and school accommodations, contact your student’s teacher or the school nurse.
