The Dental Van recently canceled their visit to our school, and
unfortunately some students were unable to be seen by the Dentist.
If your child was one of these students, and you are wondering
where to take your child for dental care,you may contact Primary
Healthcare Centers Dentistry at 706-956-2665. The staff will be
happy to answer any questions you may have concerning your child,
and they have insurance coordinators that will be glad to help you
understand your insurance benefits, and financial options for any
care that your child may receive. If you have any questions, please
feel free to contact me.
SCHOOL HEALTH NEWS
The school does not stock over the counter medications such as
children's Tylenol or Ibuprofen. If you feel your child may need
some medication to be given at school, please complete a Medical
Authorization and Release form which can be turned in to the front
office, or to me along with the medication in the original bottle.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
DO YOU START YOUR DAY WITH BREAKFAST?
Do you and your children have time for breakfast everyday?
Breakfast is a very important meal. Just think, if you ate
supper around 6:00 and you don't eat breakfast in the
morning, you could be going 18 hours without eating.
That would be hard for most people, especially
children. Being hungry can cause headaches and stomachaches
and feeling shakey. Many kids tell me they didn't eat
breakfast because they didn't have time to. We have a great
solution to this dilemma. February would be a great month to
try our school breakfast. You can be sure your child starts
the day with a good breakfast and help us win a visit from an
Atlanta Falcons Football player. For February we are in
a Fuel Up to Play competition with other schools to have high
participation in our breakfast program. It would be a great
month to start eating breakfast at school. You can find the
menu on the left menu of this page.
There are times that students become sick or get injured at
school and it is very important that we are able to contact a
parent. People often change their cell phone numbers and
forget to let us know at school. Please be sure we have your
current contact information. If you change your phone number
come in and change it on your child's transportation card and send
in a note to your child's teacher.
Medications at School
If your student requires medication at school there are
some guidelines to be followed. For an ongoing medication, the
parent should come in with the medication in the original
prescription bottle with the pharmacy label on it and fill out the
Medical Authorization and Release Form.
If your child is on a temporary medication like an antibiotic
that is a 4 a day dose it can be given at school. Bring it in and
fill out the same Medical Authorization and Release Form.
Please be aware that I cannot send
medication home with a student. It must be picked up by a parent.
The school is open until 6:00 daily.
Our school does not stock over the counter medications. If your
child frequently needs an over the counter medication like
Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen, etc. and you would like for them to
have that at school you can bring it in and fill out the Medical
Authorization and Release Form. These must also be in their
original and be children's medication.
