Health Office Message
Phillips Eye Institute Vision Screening
Your child will have a vision screening at school on Tuesday, January 11th by Phillips Eye Institute’s Early Youth Eyecare (E.Y.E.) Community Initiative, part of Allina Health.
While this screening is designed to identify issues with your child’s vision, it is not considered to be a full eye exam. If your child does not pass the vision screening, you will be notified with the recommendation to have your child receive an examination by an eye doctor for further evaluation. E.Y.E. can assist with scheduling the examination, as well as provide interpreter services, transportation and financial assistance with exams and glasses.
Please fill out the form here if you NOT like your child to participate.

Tech Tips - iPad Update
All student and staff iPads need to be updated to at least iPad OS 15.1 by the time we return from winter break. This is a necessary update to keep them both running properly and secure. Families, please help your students with the process and remind them to get it done. Families without wifi at home, please have your student check in at the library when they return so we can help them here at school.
Be sure the iPad is at least 50% charged AND plugged in before starting the process. Know that it will take at least one more, possibly several to run the update. Go to Settings > General > Software Update.
If the iPad isn't up to date, it will provide a link to Download and Install. If you have any questions, be sure to let me know after break. I am best reached by email email@example.com or text (612) 568-2358.
SPPS has formed a new partnership with TutorMe to give students free access to online tutoring services. TutorMe allows students to connect with a subject-level expert tutor at any time to get support in current classes. TutorMe is an external company SPPS is contracting with as an additional resource for students alongside the SPPS Academic Support Center and other student support opportunities in our schools.
