Dental examinations are required upon original entry into school (usually Kindergarten, 1st grade, or new to the district) and in 3rd and 7th grades. This requirement may be met by examination from the student’s primary dental provider or school dentist. School dental exams are visual exams only and are provided free of charge, but permission is needed in writing. Parents/guardians have 60 days from school entry to provide either permission for a school exam or private dental report. Failure to comply with either permission for a school exam or private exam report may result in school exclusion. Parents/guardians will be notified of missing documentation and possible exclusion if conditions are not met.
If you need assistance accessing dental care for your student, please contact either the school nurse or the caseworker for assistance and resources.
