Hearing, Vision & Scoliosis Screening Clinic

This year we are requiring parents to have their child’s Hearing, Vision & Scoliosis Screenings and updated immunizations completed before school starts on August 14th.

You are welcome to make an appointment with your personal medical provider for these screenings, but, in an effort to help parents out with this, Dr. David Sanchez has graciously offered to provide a Hearing & Vision Screening Clinic for ACS.

Dates:  Wednesday, August 2nd & Thursday, August 3rd

Time:  8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Location:  Alpine Medical Center, 202 N. 2nd Street; 432-837-5505

Cost:  Screenings will cost $35 for both ($25 hearing & $10 vision).

Note:  Parents with insurance are to call their primary medical provider if they need a referral or if their insurance company requires prior authorization.

Hearing & Vision Screenings: As instructed in the Online Enrollment Application, hearing & vision screenings are required from students who meet the State requirements below.  The screening forms can be picked up at the school or found on the school website under Admissions>Forms.  Dr. Sanchez’s office will also have extra forms available.
