VACATION TIME I
Is the best time to have physical de fect corrected, and dental work done. If the needed medical work is done at this time the child will not be handicapped by same the last half of his school year and the years fol lowing. And if the work is done' now the child will not miss any time from his school studies. Notices of the findings of the school examinations have gone home for the children in Lincoln, Junior High and High School. Dental, but not physical, notices have been sent home for the children in the McKinley and Garfield schools. Any parent of a child in McKin ley, Garfield or Rural School may come to the office and get the result , of the examination of his or her child. It has taken considerable time to duplicate the dental cards and to fill in the blanks for the physical find ings. It is for this reason that the notices have not all gone out. How AVer all nnt.irfts will he readv to BO out right after vacation is over. I Do you still remember about the , Kansas Mothers' Manual which can be obtained free of charge from the office at any time that yau care to call for same? This manual is printed for the purpose of helping mothers with the problem of rearing children. , RED CROSS NURSE. Office W.,2nd St. Phone 309.
