Financial Aid Begins in Senior Focus Classes
This month we will start assisting students to complete Financial Aid applications:
FAFSA (for documented students)
ORSAA (for undocumented students)
All students who plan to attend 4-year university or community college, need to apply for financial aid. Many of our seniors will qualify for grant money to help them pay for post-high school education. Grant money is not a loan, it doesn't need to be paid back. It's the best kind!
Seniors will be asking you for some help. They will need access to your 2019 tax information and you will need to sign their application.
These guides are my favorite resource on FAFSA because they are simple, helpful, and easy to understand. I encourage you to take a look!
If your student will file an ORSAA application, please watch this short informational video:

Tips For Vision Health During Distance Learning
· Encourage your children to take frequent screen breaks. Follow the 20:20:20 rule, take 20 second breaks every 20 minutes to look away from the screen at a distance of at least 20 feet.
· Keep screens at least arms length distance away from eyes
· Discourage using screens in a dark room
· Consider printing assignments, if possible
· Turn off screens at least one hour before bedtime to support healthy sleep
· Children should have regular vision screenings
· Look for signs of vision issues
Signs of Vision Issues:
· Complaints of eye discomfort or fatigue
· Frequent eye rubbing or blinking
· Short attention span
· Frequent Headaches
· Covering one eye
· Holding reading materials close to the face
· Losing place when reading
· Seing double
· An eye turning in or out
Information about vision screening:
· In a normal school year, a basic vision screening is completed for every elementary aged child in the Beaverton School District. It is unlikely vision screenings will be performed in the school setting for the 20-21 school year due to COVID-19
· The American Optometric Association recommends regular eye exams for all children
· Please contact School Nurse Kim Bartholomew if you need help accessing vision services · Kimberly_bartholomew@beaverton.k12.or.us
