Keeping children and teens healthy and safe is always a top priority.

Information includes helmet recommendations for sports helmets, resource materials and informational videos about head injuries and how to prevent them.
There are also free APPS to download for children, one being Rocket Blades: The Brain Safety Game.
Fluoride Rinse Program
The Stoughton Public Schools has an opportunity to participate in the Weekly Fluoride Rinse Program. The program is coordinated and funded by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health Office of Oral Health.
