FREE Dental Screening

USD's Dental Hygiene Department will be coming to the Beresford Elementary School February 26th, 27th and 28th, 2019.  They will be offering FREE fluoride treatments, screenings, and sealants.  Cleanings and x-rays are available with payment.

If this is a service you feel would benefit your child, please fill out the consent form and return to the school office.  The USD hygienists will not be able to perform any service without parental consent.  Transportation for middle and high school students to the elementary building will be provided by USD.

What immunizations does my child need to start school?

When should I keep my child home from school?

What if my child has a peanut/tree nut allergy?

What if my child has head lice?

If a student is found to have live head lice, their parent/guardian will be contacted to pick them up for treatment.  The student may return to school after treatment has been completed.  Upon returning to school, the child will be re-checked for live lice.

If live lice are found, the child will be re-checked every school day until no more live lice are found.  If nits are found, the child will be re-checked weekly until the nits are gone.  If the child has siblings in the district, they will also be checked.

If live lice are a continued problem, the Department of Social Services may be contacted.

It is not necessary to do classroom head checks.  Other students who are in close proximity to a child with live lice, close friends, or coats/items that belong to that child will be checked.  If another student is identified as having live lice, the entire class will be checked at that time.
