Helpful Hints for Drop off/Pick up

  • If you are in the pick up line, please remain inside your vehicle. Once students are safely on the sidewalk please move forward so traffic can flow smoothly.
  • If you park in the lot, please walk your student to the side walk regardless of their age. Students are not permitted in the parking lot unattended for their safety.
  • Please always use the crosswalks
  • If someone else is picking up or dropping off your student, please let them know these helpful hints

Healthy Futures Dental Clinic

As a reminder, the Healthy Futures Dental team will be back to Sunset Hill on March 20th and possibly the 21st 2023. If your child is in need of a primary dental home you can still enroll at the link below. You do not need to sign up if you have previously done so this school year. If further work is needed outside of the preventative care, the Healthy Futures team will work with you to get an appointment set up at their main clinic, Heartland Community Health Center. Healthy Futures accepts Medicaid, Commercial Insurance, and the uninsured. There is NO COST to you even if your child is uninsured or not fully covered through commercial insurance. For any additional questions regarding the school-based dental program reach out to the Healthy Futures team via email or by phone 785-841-7297 ex 5601.
