Student athletes to be fitted for mouth guards this month
IOWA CITY- Mouth guard fittings for Iowa City Community School District and Regina athletes will take place at the following locations and times. If no location is listed, please contact the school for more information:
Wed., Aug. 5 - West High School, Cafeteria, 6 p.m.
Mon., Aug. 10 - South East Junior High, Room 209, 6 p.m.
Wed., Aug. 12 - Northwest Junior High, MPR, 6 p.m.
Thurs., Aug. 13 - North Central Junior High, Cafeteria, 6 p.m.
Children are asked to attend the fitting at the school they will attend, but may attend any night if there is a schedule conflict. Area dentists have volunteered their time and expertise for many years to make these custom-formed mouth guards. This service is intended only for athletes who will participate in school-sponsored events. The health services department of the Iowa City Community School District recommends mouth guards be worn for all contact sports including football (mandatory), basketball, wrestling and soccer. There is a charge of $15 per mouth guard, which is payable at the time of the fitting. The mouth guards will be returned to the athlete's school and distributed from the athletic training room or main office. Questions can be directed to Jennifer McHenry at the Central Administration Office, 688-1000.
