Smiles on the Move Program
Forms were sent home offering preventative dental services right here at school. This program is sponsored by UCFS. Please review the form and send it back if you would like to take advantage of this service. We need 15 participants for the program to come to Oakdale School.
The following information can be found on the UCFS website:
UCFS is pleased to offer preventive dental services in the school setting to children enrolled in the following cities and towns: Colchester, Franklin, Griswold, Groton, Lebanon, Ledyard, Lisbon, Montville, Norwich, Preston, Sprague and Voluntown.
Each child will receive an exam, cleaning and fluoride treatment. Sealants and dental x-rays are performed as needed. Children also learn proper brushing and flossing techniques.
All children are eligible to receive dental treatment. For children with no dental insurance, the cost for the above services provided in the school is $40. Sealants are an additional charge of $30 per tooth. The service is 100% covered (no charge) for children insured by HUSKY or Medicaid. UCFS accepts most insurance plans. Coverage and costs for these plans depends upon your insurance coverage.
The School Store will open for business this Friday. Students may visit the school store before class begins on Fridays.

Message from the Principal
Lunch Visits: Please make arrangements ahead of time with the office if you plan to visit your child during lunch. You can email both secretaries at: email@example.com when visiting a student for lunch in the cafeteria. The visitor will be issued a sticker with "lunch visit" displayed for staff to see. We also ask that visitors do not attend recess with students. We value recess as a time for students to be with their peers to develop appropriate social interaction skills. Once lunch is over visitors can sign out in the office. Parents/visitors should not leave the cafeteria unless they have signed in after lunch for volunteering or have a prearranged visit/appointment scheduled in another location of the school. Staff members will alert the office if they have arranged for a volunteer. Please feel free to visit the district's website (www.montvilleschools.org) for further information regarding policies on school visitors.

Just a reminder that school hours for elementary schools changed this year to 8:45 – 3:20. Student drop-off begins at 8:30 and dismissal is promptly at 3:20. Students should not be picked up later than 3:20. If an emergency arises and you are going to be late, please contact the office. Dismissal time is a very busy time, please make sure to communicate any dismissal changes in the form of a note or email at the start of the day. In the rare event that dismissal plans change during the school day, please make every effort to call the school prior to noon so we can communicate these changes with your child and his/her teachers.
