Parents of children who are in our census database will be called to schedule a screening appointment before their child's 4th birthday. If you would like to schedule your child for screening before that time, you can call Launette Tisdale at 763-497-0904 ext. 7008. If you have not received a call to schedule screening by your child's 4th birthday, please call Launette.
It's a careful, simple check of your child's growth... physical, developmental, and emotional. Early childhood screening helps us identify health and learning problems, and prevent them from becoming more serious. However, screening is not intended as a substitute for health care from your family physical or other providers.
All children living in District 885 who are 3 to 4 years old and not currently enrolled in kindergarten NEED to participate in this FREE screening program before entering kindergarten. Minnesota state law requires that your child must be screened for enrollment in a public school. Children who attend Head Start or Early Childhood Special Education may not have to participate.
The ideal age for screening is when your child is 3 years old. Waiting until the year before school entry may be waiting too long.
Yes. Screenings are done by appointment only. You will be contacted by phone when your child is age-eligible for his/her screening, and an appointment will be scheduled. Screenings are done periodically throughout the school year (see attached schedule) at St. Michael Elementary. Please contact Julie Winkelman at 763-497-6520 with questions. If you have an age-eligible child and have not been contacted by us, please call Launette or Julie.
If you have scheduled an appointment for your child's screening, forms and a confirmation letter will be mailed to you. If you misplace or do not receive the forms, please call 763-497-0904 ext. 7008 for a new packet, or you may click on the links below to print the documents.
