Attention Parent/Guardian: The Dental Preventive Clinic will be operating at Somerset Consolidated beginning late January-early February.
Purpose of Dental Clinic: Screen children to assess risk of oral disease; provide oral health education, topical fluoride, scaling/polishing and sealants, according to your child’s individual needs.
Screening: All children will be seen for a two-minute screening to determine their risk of oral disease. If you do not wish your child to have this dental screening, please notify the school secretary or classroom teacher.
Consent: After the screening, all children will be given a consent form which will be necessary for you to complete and return before services are provided.
Fees: There is no cost involved as the preventive services are covered by the Children’s Dental Care Program.
Contact: If you have any questions about the program, please contact the dental staff at the School or the Dental Public Health Clinic in Summerside at 902-888-8145.
Further Information: Please note that only preventive services will be provided and the screening is not a substitute for an annual dental examination. It is strongly recommended that parents take their children to a dentist for regular examinations and treatment. The Children’s Dental Care Program assists with the cost of basic dental care delivered in private and public dental offices for children from ages 3 – 17.

The Band Practice after school today is not happening of course due to classes being cancelled today, January 9th. As well, the meeting this evening at KRHS regarding the new Hot Lunch model is also CANCELLED. I will keep you posted when the meeting date is rescheduled.
A new model will be tested at Kinkora Regional High School where staff members have been hired to prepare and distribute healthy meals to KRHS students, as well as at its feeder schools, which are Amherst Cove Consolidated and Somerset Consolidated Schools. There will be a meeting on Thursday, January 9th at KRHS at 6:30 pm to inform parents/teachers regarding the food(s) to be served and the payment plan. All are encouraged to attend.
Exciting day tomorrow for the students and staff at Somerset. Concert will be at 1:30 pm. Doors will open at 1 and we ask that you respect this time as we try to have as little disruption in the student’s class time as possible. Also please remember that Somerset Consolidated is a SCENT FREE environment due to allergies. There will also be tickets sold at the door for a basket to raise money for the band trip in the spring. Look forward to seeing you at the concert!
Also you may drop off donations for the Christmas Bazaar the day of the concert. We are still short on “DAD” gifts and still require a couple of volunteers to wrap etc. on Monday, December 16th.
We would like to thank the KRHS students, Mrs. Reeves and Mrs. MacFarlane who came to Somerset to make our students pancakes this morning. It was a yummy treat enjoyed by everyone.
Thanks for the donations that are starting to come into the school for the Christmas Bazaar on Monday, December 16th. We seem to be short on items for DAD’s.

On December 16th, the children can shop for their family members! Each item at the bazaar will be $1. The children will be allowed to buy 1 item for each immediate family member.
