Santa Fe Public Schools Vision Screening Program: September 13 & 14

Santa Fe Public Schools Vision Screening Program: September 13 & 14

Sweeney Elementary School vision screenings are scheduled on September 13th & 14th.

Legislation was passed in New Mexico in 2007 requiring vision screening to be administered to students enrolled in identified grades. That same legislation created a fund to provide assistance for students without insurance and referred by school nurses to obtain a comprehensive eye exam and/or eye wear as appropriate.
Target populations for required screening in New Mexico schools include the following grades and all new and transfer students who do not have a record of vision screening on file with the school.
* Pre-kindergarten
* Kindergarten
* First Grade
* Third Grade
If you do not wish to have your child screened, please notify your school before Monday September 11th.
