Hopeful our West Shore School District Families have had an enjoyable summer with family, friends, community.
2022-2023 - Your child(ren) may have brought home two dental forms (dental report form & permission slip to receive fluoride varnish treatment).
To remain in compliance with PA DHS state mandate for dental evaluations, The District will require students show evidence of having a dental evaluation in grades 1, 3, and 7. Within the first week of school, parents/caregivers of children in grades 1, 3, and 7 will receive a Private Dental Report Form. Please complete and return to teachers/school secretaries.
In addition, the District no longer provides fluoride tablets to students who do not have fluoride in their home water source. Students not having fluoride in their water and/or at risk of dental disease (dental cavities), will be eligible to receive a fluoride varnish treatment at no cost. This form will be available to school secretaries, teachers and myself to share with students/families/caregivers.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the above District's Dental Program, policy, or participation, please contact Ms. Donna Murray, the District’s certified school dental hygienist, at [email protected]
or (717) 938-9577 x43007
"Smiles are free, and kind words cost nothing, but they can be worth the world. Students be inspirational as you begin this school year".
