Where Can I Get Free or Low Cost Health Care?

For assistance in finding a free or low cost immunization clinic, call or e-mail your District School Nurse.

What Do I do if My Child Needs Glasses?

If your child needs glasses and you are unable to afford them, contact your District School Nurse.

If you have Medi-Cal, your District School nurse can help you find an eye doctor who will accept Medi-Cal.

The Disrict School Nurses participates in a partnership with the Sight for Students Program. This program provides free gift certificates for eye exams and glasses once every 12 months. To be eligible: the child must be 18 years of age or younger. The child or parent must be a US citizen or documented immigrant with a social security number. The child should not have any other vision insurance that covers eye exams or glasses. The family income must be within 200% of the poverty level. This means a family of 4 can earn slightly over $34,000 a year and still participate in this program. If you think your child is eligible, contact your District School Nurse.

If you are not eligible for those programs, your District School Nurse can make a referral to the Lion"s Club. The Lion's Club also provides assistance with eye exams and glasses.
