During the school year, a Dental Professional from Northwestern Health Unit will check the dental health of students up to and including 17 years of age. This involves a quick look in the mouth with a flashlight or with a sterilized mirror, explorer and vinyl gloves.
The screenings will help us plan the school dental health program, measure the effects of water flouridation, build a postive dental attitude in children, identify and follow-up children who have urgent dental needs. Screenings do not replace regular visits to the dentist.
Batteries contain heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium, and nickel. When these batteries are deposited in a landfill, these heavy metals have the potential to slowly leach into our soils, groundwater, and surface water. This is a huge environmental concern.
The DHS Green Eagles are now collecting batteries for recyling. Students and staff can bring their old household batteries to the drop off box in the main office to ensure that they will be disposed as hazardous waste.
The Green Eagles meet every Tuesday at 11:30 in room 107. All interested students and staff are welcome.
