We need as many volunteers as we can get for the January events.

Please check back as we update the locations and dates.

Screening in the Anchorage School District

School vision screening will begin on Sept 6. We will be screening ONLY preschool, kindergarten and 1st grade in September. Second and third grade and schools that want us to screen every student will be scheduled starting Oct 7. No exceptions this year. We have to maintain a schedule that is manageable and convenient for both our lions and the school nurses. Email Esther to volunteer or with questions.

Without volunteers we have no program.

​We will be called back to many of the schools to do a third round of screenings. The absentee rate has been very high this year and the nurses need our help to catch the ones that were missed for their annual reports. It could be anywhere from three students to 50. These makeups can usually be done by one screener.

Please note that we are very short on volunteers. If you are available to help at any of the schools, please let Esther know.

Check back often, updated schedules will be uploaded frequently.
