In order for your child to start kindergarten in any Minnesota public school (s)he must participate in early childhood screening. Screening includes vision, hearing, height, weight, speech/language and developmental observations. We offer these screenings throughout the school year. Ideally children are screened between the ages of 3 ½ – 4 years old, or earlier if parents have concerns about their child’s development. There is no cost for the screening. Please call Sue at 333-3119 to schedule an appointment for your child!

Upcoming screening dates for the 2020-21 school year will be posted by September 1.

In response to the executive order by Governor Tim Waltz regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, District 31 Early Childhood Screening continues to be closed. Screening appointments may be available in July or August if Governor Walz deems appropriate.

If your child needs an early childhood screening or if you have questions, leave a message at 218-333-3119 or email janelle_saiger@isd31.net. We will add your child to the list of screenings to be rescheduled.

Thank you and we look forward to meeting you and your child.
