At its February 8th meeting, the Board of Education approved a resolution that Board Member McKenna and Schmerelson introduced to raise awareness of oral health, highlight the value of dental screenings. It is well documented that oral health screenings are a window into signaling the status of our physical health, be it good or bad. Oral health screenings for our youngest learners allows us to provide families a pathway to be proactive advocates for their children’s health. We hope you will take the opportunity to make an appointment for your child to visit a dentist or get an oral screening in the month of February and beyond.
