How Do I Find Out What's Going On at Norwalk Schools? Norwalk Athletic/Activities Website: www.norwalkwarriors.org Norwalk Athletic & Activity Schedules: www.littlehawkeyeconference.com First Day at Norwalk Schools: Friday, August 23rd Kids Heading Back To School Soon? Don't Forget These Three Essential Exams Tie official start of school in Iowa is less than a moth away! As you prepare, keep in mind that there aret few important back to school items that have noting to do with notebooks or backpacks. These thre essential preventive and wellness exams need to b scheduled with your family medical provider, you optometrist, and your dentist ASAP. h Iowa, there are several grade-based reqirements for children, according to the Iowa Delartment of Public Health. These three apI/ntments will help track your child's growth, asses changes in their vision, watch for signs of der l disease and provide peace of mind as your child stas their new school year. 1)Dental screening requirements: Children ent:ing kindergarten and ninth grade in Iowa schds are required to have a dental screening. The Iow Department of Public Health Certificate of Dermal Screening form must be completed and signed. Accrding to the American Dental Association (ADA), tooh decay is the single most common infectious disase affecting U.S. children. " hese preventive checks can help with early ide ification of dental health and other overall hea:h issues," said Dr. Jeffrey Chaffin, vice president anck4ental director, Delta Dental of Iowa. "This is a goo opportunity to have dental sealants applied and to dtermine if there are any issues with your child's orahealth. If your child is active in contact sports, askour dentist about custom-fitted mouth guards." 2)Vision screening requirements: "The child whaad 20/20 vision during the last school year may be wuggling to read the white board this year," said Dr. Chad Overman, director of vision benefits for DeltaVision by Delta Dental of Iowa. WChile the state of Iowa requires an eye exam before Kindergarten and again before third grade, it's a good practice to schedule an eye exam every one to two years, especially for kids. During your child's eye exam, ask questions about eye protection for sports, screen time strain on eyes and how to care for contact lenses or glasses during the busy school months." The Iowa Department of Public Health requires that children have a vision screening at least once before Kindergarten and again before third grade. The IDPH Certificate of Vision Screening lists the timeline for valid screening. 3) Wellness check-ups: The last annual exam suggestion from Delta Dental of Iowa is an overall wellness checkup. Most insurance plans including Medicaid and Hawk-I cover annual wellness checkups at no cost. A comprehensive health screening assesses a child's overall health including growth patterns, updating immunizations, and nutritional and safety assessments. This is a good time to ask questions, chart progress and discuss changes your child may encounter in the upcoming year. Additionally, Iowa schools require any students in grades 7 - 12 participating in sports to have an annual pre-participation physical examination. It's as easy as 1-2-3 - If you've already taken care of these health exams, relax and enjoy the few weeks of summer with your family. If not, don't worry; it's not too late. Schedule appointments for your child with your medical provider, your dentist and your optometrist ASAP so your child is fully prepared to go back to school.
