📣We are completing vision and hearing screening at Whitesville Central School for grades 1, 3, 5, 7 and 11. Parents will be getting a letter with vision results, as well as, if a student fails the hearing screening. We recommend everyone gets their hearing and vision checked by their doctor every year -- the screenings done at school indicate any issues that a healthcare provider should evaluate and follow-up. Stay tuned in for more wellness information!💙

About 3.8 million concussions occur each year in the U.S. from sports-related injuries. At Whitesville School, we are doing baseline testing this week through ImPACT, so that our medical director can evaluate better if someone has suffered a concussion and if they are recovered enough to return to playing sports. ImPACT is an FDA cleared medical test that is used by healthcare, educational, and sports organizations to help assess and manage concussions.
