Health Screenings
The Hilliard City School Nurses will be conducting health screenings on selected grade levels in the near future.  Hearing screening is done on kindergarten, first, third, fifth, ninth and eleventh grade students. Vision is performed on grades kindergarten, first, third, fifth, seventh, ninth and eleventh. These are the grades, which the Ohio Department of Health recommends for screening.  If a student fails the first screening, a second screening is done.  If the student then has difficulty, a referral will be mailed to the parent.  Although all screenings are fairly accurate, this is not a substitute for a regular visit to your physician or eye doctor.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call your school nurse.

Athletic Information
Be sure to check out the Hilliard Darby Athletic Department website for important information and schedules throughout the year!
