All students will be bringing home a consent form this week from the Dental/Vision Outreach Program through Health Partners of Western Ohio. For many years, their dental van has visited our schools and provided dental exams, cleanings, fluoride treatments, and sealants to our students at no out-of-pocket cost to their families. They will bill Medicaid and private insurances only. This year, Vision Outreach will be visiting the schools around February. They will provide comprehensive eye exams and glasses at no out-of-pocket cost to their families. If you would like to sign your student up for one or both programs, please complete the form and return it to the school by Friday, Aug 25. If your student did not receive a form, please contact the nurse at your students school and one will be sent home with them.
