Canyons School District provide free glasses to elementary school students
MIDVALE, Utah — Elementary school children from the Canyons School District went home with free pairs of glasses Thursday. The glasses were provided through a partnership with Utah Partners for Health and Charity Vision.
Students from East Midvale Elementary School got eye tests earlier in the year. About 30 of those children got them for free through the partnership.
In a Facebook post, the Canyons School District said the mobile Utah Partners for Health clinic comes by the district’s Title I schools twice a year.
Shelly McCall, the Title I community school facilitator for East Midvale Elementary, called it “heartwarming” to see the children receive their glasses.
“That’s one barrier that we’re able to take down for learning,” McCall said.
