The Miami County Dental Clinic Is Coming to PICS!


Dental packets have been sent home with every student at PCIS.  The MCDC has been servicing our district for several years.  They provide cleanings, fillings, exams, xrays, and multiple other dental services to our students. Children are seen regardless of insurance coverage. Please take time to look at the packet sent home and consider taking advantage of this wonderful program here at our school.

Winter Health Reminders from PCIS

A healthy school environment requires the cooperation and effort of us all working together. During this time of year we tend to see a higher incidence of strep throat, respiratory and gastrointestinal illnesses. I would like to remind everyone that they can help to protect themselves and their families from many of these airborne illnesses.

Follow CDC's recommendations for Habits for Good Health listed below 

       

Habits for Good Health

Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. throw the tissue away after you use it. If 

  you do not have a tissue, cover your mouth and nose with the inside of your elbow.

Wash your hands often with soap and water especially after you cough or sneeze. If you are not near water,

  use an alcohol based hand cleaner.

Stay away as much as you can from people who are sick.

If you or your child gets the flu, stay home from work or school. Do not go near other people so that you don’t

  make them sick too.   

Try not to touch your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs often spread this way.

Dress for the weather. Come to school dressed for the winter. Wear layers of loose fitting clothing. Wear

  mittens and gloves. Wear a hat. Remember, the air that is trapped inside your clothing, warmed by your body

  heat, is the best protection from the cold.
