Important for all third graders:
To comply with State requirements ALL 3rd grade students need a dental exam. If your child has had a dental exam during their 2nd or 3rd grade school year, this is acceptable. Forms should be at the school prior to January 24, 2014.
Students who are still missing the dental requirement should have received a dental form just prior to the holiday break (check their backpack!).
Choose to do ONE of the following:
1-Please have your dentist complete the form, if your child has been to the dentist within the past year. Dental exams must be dated after August 20, 2012.
2-Take the form to your child’s next appointment if it within the next 4 months AND please call the school informing us that you plan a private exam for your child.
3-NO dental insurance or private dentist?-no problem! If you are unable to have your child examined by a private dentist, the school dentist will provide a screening here at school in late February. YOU MUST CALL THE SCHOOL to let us know this is your option. We will schedule your child to see the school dentist.
Dental forms can be found on the district website under district forms.
