Dear Parents and Guardians,
The Walking Shield/OneSight program will be coming to Klamath Trinity Joint Unified School District April 9-13th, 2018. They will be offering free vision exams to all students District wide. All children will have the opportunity to receive a free eye exam from a licensed Optometrist. If it is found that your child needs glasses, the program comes equipped to make the prescription glasses on site. Your child will receive their glasses by the end of the week for free. The District will be providing transportation from the outlying school sites to Hoopa High School, where the exams will take place. Once the schedule is finalized letters will go home with the children, announcing dates and times. This is an amazing opportunity for our children in the District.
I will be the contact person for all PK-12 students. The students who return their consent forms will be scheduled during the school hours and will either be transported to the High School by the District or will be escorted to the High School from surrounding campuses.
We will also be including pre-school age children that will enter school as a Kindergartener for the 2018-2019 school year. The children must be able to read a picture chart. If you have a pre-school age child that qualifies and you would like to schedule a vision exam contact:
Angie Brown at (530) 625-5600, ext 2210 or
Verla Jackson-Robbins at (530) 625-5600, ext 2358
In order for your child to take advantage of this great program, they must return the enclosed permission slip. Our goal is to service 1200 children. We need to reach this goal for the OneSight Program to come and offer this wonderful opportunity. Please complete the permission slip and return it to your child’s teacher immediately, so we can finalize our appointment schedule.
The One Sight Program will also be offering free vision exams and glasses to 400 adults. If you would like to schedule a vision exam for an adult, please contact Paula Gray at K’ima:w Medical Center (530) 625-4261 to schedule an appointment.
