From School Nurses

“This law is very valuable, but the rules are too relaxed. The opt-out form is too easy for parents to just sign and forget about. I have had several students (not all kindergarten age) who showed a lot of improvement with vision correction.”

—Shannon Jones, School Nurse

“So many children struggle with reading and learning in general. They often are tested for learning disabilities, put in special program, treated as if there is a behavior disorder or started on medication. Very often the problem is their eyesight, or the way they process information they take in visually. Early professional vision exams are important for our children and a necessary tool that many parents would not think of on their own.”

—Melody Croch, RN, School Nurse
