Student Personal Devices
Since the winter break, there has been an uptick in classroom disruptions due to students' personal devices, such as cell phones and smart watches. Student often have these devices to help with after school communication and coordination. However, students should refrain from using them during the school day. This will help in making the classroom environment free from distraction.
If there is a need to communicate with your child during the school day (e.g., a change in the "go home plan"), please feel free to contact the front office.

Free Vision Screening for All Students
We will be giving a free vision screening to all students at Archer Glen on Tuesday, February 14. 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 our office 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 the 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
Dear Parent/Guardian: We will have free dental screenings by local Dentist Dr. JJ Bittner and/or Dr. Kendra Flann at Archer Glen Elementary on February 3rd 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!
