Medical, Dental, and Eye Exams:

Please have the medical and dental forms completed prior to the start of school in August.  Although they are NOT REQUIRED, it is in your child's best interest to have a physical exam and to visit the dentist.  Yearly medical check-ups can monitor your child's development and detect health problems early.  Also, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that children have routine cleaning of their teeth every 6 months to help prevent cavities and other dental problems.

In addition, it is highly recommended, although NOT REQUIRED, that ALL children have a complete eye examination by an eye specialist prior to beginning school to detect vision problems.  Children may not be able to tell their parents if they are having a problem because they do not know what they are supposed to be seeing.

We are looking forward to meeting you and your new kindergarten student.  If you have any questions, please give us a call.  If you know of someone who has a child who will be five by August 1, please call the school office.
