PCPS Vision Project 2019-20
PCPS (Petersburg City Public Schools) School Health is partnering with Conexus to provide technology-based vision screenings and eye exams to students in Petersburg City Public Schools for the 2019-2020 school year. This partnership is familiar to PCPS.
Conexus, which is a non-profit organization, will provide free vision services to our students. These vision services will include state approved technology-based vision screening, free eye exams and glasses (if necessary) right at school.
Conexus will conduct vision screenings, eye exams and provide eyeglases for:
- All students in Kindergarten, 3rd, 7th, and 10th grades
- Additional consented students referred into the program by nurses or other school resources (written parental consent is required for students in grades other than KG, 3, 7, & 10).
- Vision services forms and information are located under "Forms and Information". Just click to access the forms.
Each Petersburg school has a clinic staffed by a licensed nurse to provide health and wellness services. School nurses provide direct care to students with illness and injuries, administer medication, monitor immunizations, perform hearing and vision screenings and promote health necessary for academic success.
Students are not to transport prescription or non-prescription medication to or from school or have medication in their possession at any time. If a student needs medication during the school day, the parent/guardian must deliver it to the school nurse, principal or designee.
All medical information (including current contact information) must be submitted and updated at the beginning of each school year. Forms are available on this page or you may contact your school nurse for information and forms pertaining to your child's current medical needs. Last year's medical action and treatment plans cannot be used for the current school year.
