Clever Athletics:
Tooth Truck
We are pleased to announce the Tooth Truck has the opportunity to treat eligible students at Clever during the 2016-2017 school year.  The Tooth Truck provides comprehensive treatment, from cleanings and x-rays, to repairing cavities at no charge for qualifying families.  Requirements for being seen and treated on the Tooth Truck are:
-Qualify for free and reduced lunch program at school
-Cannot be an established patient of a local dentist
-Cannot have private dental insurance
-Must complete a Tooth Truck application form
The Tooth Truck treats Medicaid-eligible and uninsured children.  Children seen last year are not eligible for a routine check up but should apply if there is a new dental concern.
An application is available at school upon request (link is also attached below).  Complete the application form and return to the school nurse as soon as possible.
The Tooth Truck staff will be scheduling students very soon.
 
Thank you,
Your school nurse

MONTHLY MEETING!
Join us on Wednesday & hear from Springfield Fire about fire safety & closed door messaging

Our monthly meeting will be held on Wednesday, August 17th at 10:00 am at the Mercy Home Health building, 1570 W. Battlefield, Suite 110. Guests are always welcome.

Look Before You Lock!

Southwest Missouri is not immune to heat-related vehicle deaths to children. In fact, last month a child from McDonald County died as a result of being trapped inside a vehicle that he had climbed into during play. A vehicle rescue occurred in Republic last Wednesday when a father forgot his child in the back seat when temperatures were over 90 degrees. Please use the materials on our website to help educate families about looking in the back seat when they exit the vehicle and to keep their vehicles locked at all times.
