Early childhood screenings scheduled

Published 9:50 am Friday, January 20, 2012


The state of Minnesota requires a developmental screening of all three to four-year-old children. Albert Lea Area Schools will conduct a free screening at Brookside Education Center from 2 to 6 p.m. on Feb. 7. The one hour screening includes simple checks of vision, hearing, growth, immunization status, language, muscle and social development. Children currently listed on the school census have been notified by mail. If your child turns four before Sept. 1, 2012, and you have not yet scheduled a screening, or are new to the community, please call Julie at 379-4843 or email jsager@albertlea.k12.mn.us to schedule your Early Childhood Screening appointment.
