State Dental Requirements
Reminder to parents: Have you taken your child to the dentist? If so, please have the dentist fill out the Family Dental Report and return the form to the school nurse.
If you do not have a dentist and would like the School Dental Hygienist to complete a screening along with fluoride, please fill out a permission slip.
For either of these forms, go to the Red Lion Homepage and click on the following tabs: Parent, Nursing & Health Services and Dental or click on the link below,
Please return your forms to the school nurse.
Timing is everything
A diet that promotes good oral health is not just about the foods you eat or avoid — when and how you eat them is equally important.
Foods that take a long time to chew or that you hold in your mouth (such as cough drops) can damage teeth as they retain sugar in the mouth longer than other foods.
Instead of snacking on sugary, carbohydrate-rich or acidic foods throughout the day, eat these foods just during meal times in order to minimize the amount of time teeth are exposed to acid. In addition, the body produces more saliva to help digest larger meals, which washes away more food and helps neutralize harmful acids before they can attack teeth.
Remember to brush and floss before bedtime to remove all the food particles….but also brush before you come to school.
The Red Lion Area School District is happy to announce that the free meal program has been extended through June 30, 2021 for all students.
The USDA, on Friday, Oct. 9, 2020, extended its Summer Food Service Program through June 30, 2021, to allow schools to continue to provide meals at no cost to all children. The program originally was scheduled to run until December 2020, but was now extended throughout the entire 2020-2021 school year.
