Dental Screenings (Kindergarten Only)
California law requires a dental screening by May 31 of a student’s first year of public school, kindergarten or first grade. The screening must be done by a licensed dentist or other licensed or registered dental health professional within 12 months of enrollment. The goal of the law is to establish dental care for every child. The screenings will identify children who need further examination and dental treatment. Parents who have questions about the dental screenings can call the District’s Student Support & Health Services Department at (209) 331-7075.
Kindergarten and First Grade Physical Exam State law requires that for each child enrolling in the first grade, the parent or guardian must present a certificate, signed by a physician, verifying that the child has received a physical examination within the last 18 months.
