Dental Screening – Grade 9

As mentioned in an earlier blog, Public Health does dental screening for all students in the elementary panel.  The dates for dental screening at St. Andrew’s JHS were January 30th to February 6th (excluding February 2nd which is our second Activity Day).  We finished in just two days!  However, the Public Health nurse did not realize that we had grade nine students in the building, as well.  She has now provided me with the parent letter for high school students which will be sent home during first period tomorrow (Wednesday) and it is attached below, as well.
