Halloween Activties!

Thank you to our Grade 6-8 students for your leadership on Halloween! We started the day with a morning parade showcasing some fantastic costumes! Then, in cross grade groups, students participated in Halloween activties organized by Grade 6s and 7s and a haunted house designed by our Grade 8s. It was a great example of the welcoming, fun, supportive community we have at Glenburnie PS!

Dental Screening

During the school year a dental hygienist and dental assistant from KFL & A Public Health will visit all elementary schools. They visit the schools for two reasons. First, they will screen children to identify dental problems that need to be seen by a dentists and to screen a few children who had dental concerns last year. The screening is a quick look in the mouth. Funding for necessary dental treatment may be provided to eligible children through the Healthy Smiles Ontario (HSO) program. In cases where treatment is needed, Public Health will keep a client record and may tell the dental office what was found.

Secondly, then dental screening helps us to monitor the oral health of children in this region. The monitoring allows KFL & A Public Health to identify the prevalence of dental disease and any new trends in dental disease. The information is used to plan programs and services that best meet the needs of children in our communities. Therefore, even if your child sees a dentist regularly, it is important that they have their teeth screened so that they are included in our monitoring of dental disease in our region.

Ontario Regulation 570 School Health Programs and Services, made under Health Protection and Promotion Act, requires dental screenings each year in all elementary schools. If you do not want your child to be screened this school year, please tell the Health Unit in writing. This letter must include your child's full name, school and grade.
