Dental Visits
The Smile Mobile Dentist visits have been postponed until May due to COVID-19 concerns. As of now, the dates are as follows:

May 3, 2021 - Intermediate School
May 4, 2021 - Primary School
May 5, 2021 - Middle School

Our typical screening timeline for weight, height, vision, and hearing will be pushed back to a later time. Our department wants to ensure that screenings are performed in the safest way possible. If you have specific concerns about your child, please reach out to your building’s School Nurse. 

Flu vaccines will be highly recommended this cold and flu season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Per the CDC, influenza vaccination will be paramount to reduce the impact of respirator illness in the population. Please contact your child’s health care provider for information on where to get a flu shot.  

Our department is working hard to keep our students and staff healthy and safe. Please do not hesitate to reach out to your building School Nurse with any questions or concerns!
