Lake Forest School District 67 and Lake Bluff School District 65 are providing free educational screening on Friday, September 28 for preschool-age children who reside in Lake Forest and Lake Bluff.
Three, four, and five year-old children who have not entered Kindergarten are eligible for the preschool screening. The purpose of screening children is not for advance placement in school, but to help parents identify development lags in their children. Developmental delays can be observed in a child’s speech and language, fine and gross motor skills, learning ability, or emotional and social growth. Nurses also complete a brief vision and hearing screening.
Screening in all areas is optional. In order to participate, a child must be registered in advance. After the child is registered, a packet will be sent home. Parents are asked to complete several necessary forms, which should be brought on the day of the child’s screening.
To schedule a child’s preschool screening appointment, please contact Carole Racansky, District 67 Department of Student Services, and 847-604-7422. Screening will take place at Lake Forest School District 67 Administration Center, 300 S. Waukegan Road, Lake Forest (located at the Lake Forest High School West Campus building), on the second floor in Seminar Rooms A, B, and C. Please park in the southwest lot and enter at the south entrance under the blue canopy.
