Blood Lead Test

A recent state law requires all Iowa children under the age of six to have at least one blood lead test and one dental screening before enrolling for school. The blood lead test is the only way to know if your child is lead poisoned. Your lead-safe child will perform well in school and make good decisions. Insist on this test from your physician. The test is covered by insurance. If you do not have a physician, contact the Black Hawk County Health Department at 319-291-2413 for the locations of free testing sites. Get ALL YOUR CHILDREN under the age of six tested for lead. Ideally, you should test your children at ages one and two. Children living in hazardous homes should be tested more often.

Dental Screening

A dental screening should be done at your child's next physical examination or at a dentist's office. If you don't have a dentist or insurance, contact the I-Smiles Program at 319-291-2413 to learn more about free dental screenings.

Physical Exam and Health History

Our Board of Education policy also requires that your child have a complete physical examination before entering preschool. A health history including specific health needs may also be required.
