Dental & Immunization Reminders for 6th Grade

All 7th Grade students are required by the state to have a dental exam and updated immunizations.

Please have your dentist complete the dental form and return the completed form to the school nurse. Any dental exam from January of this year and thereafter will be accepted. I am sending you the information now so that your child’s dentist can fill it out at the next appointment. Please return this completed form to the school nurse’s office by September.

If you do not have a dentist and would prefer to have your child seen at school, please notify me in writing. We have the "Smile Mobile Dentists" perform dental exams and cleanings in March. They accept most insurance including Medicaid and CHIPS.

The required immunizations for 7th grade are the Tdap and Menactra vaccines. Many times these are given at the 6th grade physical. Please ensure your child has these immunizations and the school nurse has the documentation before the start of 7th grade. See your health care provider for this information.
