Dental Screening at St. Cecilia - January 22 & 23/2018

posted Nov 30, 2018, 6:48 AM by

Dear Parents/Guardians: 

Lucy Charbonneau, a registered dental hygienist with Ottawa Public Health, will provide a dental screening using a tongue depressor on January 22 & 23, 2018*, for grades JK, SK, 2 and other children as necessary. If your child’s grade is not selected, but you wish for the dental hygienist to see him/her, please advise the school. All children screened will bring home a report. Follow-up school visits by the dental hygienist for individual children may be done. The screening helps identify children with oral problems, dental needs and pain. Free dental care may be possible, if eligible. THE SCREENING DOES NOT REPLACE REGULAR DENTAL VISITS WITH YOUR FAMILY DENTIST. 

* Some date(s) may be subject to change 

This dental screening is provided in accordance with the Ontario Public Health Standards from Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. Personal and personal health information collected during the screenings will be used for the purposes of delivering, administering and managing screening services and for statistical purposes provided under Sections 5 and 7 of the Health Protection and Promotion Act (as amended) and the Ontario Public Health Standards (2018). Information may be used and shared among Ottawa Public Health authorized employees in the provision of dental screening services. Questions concerning the dental screening, the collection and use of this information or if you want to have your child excluded, call the Supervisor of Dental Health Promotion, Ottawa Public Health, 400-1580 Merivale Rd., Ottawa, ON, tel.: 613-580-2424 ext 26376.

Students can dress up in festive dress and can bring festive props such as Santa hats, elf ears or even ugly Christmas sweaters from home

  • Religious theme - Thursday, December 6th

Students can pose in front of a nativity themed scene

Each photo will cost $3. Orders and payments can be made through School Cash Online. Please select the theme(s), the number of photos you would like to purchase and indicate if you would like individual and/or sibling group photos. All orders must be placed by Friday, November 30th.
