Health Room Needs
Our health room is in need of pants for boys. For all ages. We keep extra items of clothing stocked in our health room in the event our students need to change for any reason that might occur.
Lost and Found: We are extending the time for parents to check our lost and found for items left behind through today. If you are in the building attending movie night please take a moment to look through the lost and found if you student is missing anything. The lost and found rack will be placed in the main foyer.
Free Vision Screening for All Students
We will be giving a free vision screening to all students at Middleton on Tuesday, February 28. The testing will be done by the Lions Club with volunteers using the SPOT screening devices. The test is painless, is done from a distance, and does not touch your child’s eyes or face.
Results come to us in about a week. Most children pass the exam, and due to the volume of paperwork, we will only send home results for students who do not pass the exam (results sent via backpack mail). If you want a copy of “passing” results, please contact ouroffice to request. Screening results for all students will also go in their school file.
If you do not want your child to participate in this free vision screening (ie, if you want to opt-out your child) please contact our school office. If you have any questions about the vision screening, please call Health Services at 503-825-5093.
Financial assistance may be available if you need an eye exam and/or glasses for your child.
Free Dental Screenings for Children Age Seven and Younger
We will have free dental screenings by local Dentist Dr. JJ Bittner and/or Dr. Kendra Flann at Middleton Elementary on February 24th, for children age seven or younger who have not been to a dentist. This is a screening only and no treatment will be given. You may already have turned in a form to your school to say that your child has been to a dentist, or that the screening is against your family’s beliefs -- if so, your child will not be screened. If your child is screened, results will be sent to you in backpack mail and also go into the student file. If you wish to opt-out of the screening, please contact your school office.
For more information about the screening call Health Services at 503-825-5088. Good dental care contributes to the overall good health of our students!
