February is National Children's Dental Health Awareness Month!
A big thank you to our school dentist, Dr. Jennifer Kuchar from Coastal Dental, for coming this week to Melrose! She screened several students, assessing their oral health. Please take this opportunity with your child to discuss the importance of good dental habits:
1. Don't go to bed without brushing your teeth.
2. Brush carefully & not too hard to avoid tooth/gum damage.
3. Don't neglect your tongue.
4. Treat flossing as important as brushing. Children may need help; show them how.
5. Visit your dentist regularly & discuss any oral health concerns with them.
6. Let Nurse Patty know when you have visited your dentist!
7. Don't forget to change your toothbrush after an illness; start fresh!
Reported Circulating Illnesses
Melrose: conjunctivitis, stomach virus, fevers, lice
Lawn: flu, stomach virus, fevers
