Just a reminder...with the warmer weather, please be checking your child for ticks.  

The No Ticks 4 ME approach includes:

·       Wearing protective clothing.  Light clothing makes ticks easier to see and long sleeves and pants reduces exposed skin for ticks to attach.

·       Use an EPA repellent and always follow the labels.  Clothing and gear can be treated with Permethrin for longer protection.

·       Use caution in tick infested areas.  Avoid wooded and brushy areas with high grass and stay in the middle of trails whenever possible.

·       Perform daily tick checks. Check for ticks immediately after exiting high risk areas.  Bathe or shower (preferably within 2 hours after being outdoors) to wash off and find ticks on your body. Conduct a full-body tick check. Also examine clothing, gear, and pets.

Vision & Hearing Screenings

The School Health Program facilitates the healthy growth and development of school age children. Health screenings of vision, hearing, and height-weight are provided at intervals recommended by the State of Maine.

Vision, both near and distant, is screened at grades K, 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9. Re-screening can be done at any time at teacher or parent request.

Hearing screening is done at K, 1, 3 and 5, 7.

A referral letter will be sent home to parents if the screening results are outside the normal range
