Dental Screenings Required

Since the 2008-2009 school year, Iowa law requires that any child entering kindergarten or ninth grade must provide the school with proof of a dental check-up. Improving the oral health of Iowa’s children is the purpose of this law.

The Certificate of Dental Screening form is the approved form, which local dentist offices should have, or you can obtain a copy here at the school or from the download link below. A visit within the last year is acceptable. If your child was at the dentist this year, have the dentist just complete the form and return it to school with your child or your dentist may fax it to the high school at 641-466-3525. The state will audit my records later this school year to check compliance with the law.

If you need help getting a dental check-up for your child, a copy of the new form, or have questions please contact me at school.

Medications at School

If your child must have medication of any type, including over the counter medicine, given during school hours, there are a few choices regarding administration.

  1. You may get a note from the Doctor stating the time and dosage for the medicine to be given.
  2. You can discuss with your Doctor an alternative schedule to administer the medication outside of school hours.
  3. If able, you can come to school and give your child the medicine at the appropriate time.

All medicine, prescription or over the counter, must come to school in the original container with directions for administration. I feel in fairness to those giving the medication and in safety to your child, this policy must be followed. We ask this not to make things difficult for you, but to insure the health and well-being of all students.
