Coastal weather! The week in Seaside started out beautiful and sunny but high winds and rain shook the Tooth Taxi by the end of the week. Parked at Broadway Middle School we also saw students from other schools in the Seaside district including Gearhart Elementary, whose principal brought students over for screening.
School nurse, Gina Kytr RN, had lots of parent volunteers on board to help escort students. Staff assistant, Catherine Johnson's sister, Mrs. Partridge, was one of the volunteers – a former elementary school teacher in Seaside.
60% of students screened needed treatment
40% needed no treatment.
