Resources for Administrators

Lambton Public Health provides administrators with reliable learning supports to help build the skills and knowledge needed to enhance the well-being of their students.

School Dental Screening Program

Our dental screening program screens school children in JK, SK, Grade 2 and Grade 7 for oral health concerns. When we identify a child who has dental care needs, we will provide information and resources to parents and guardians to support early treatment and care. This screening is not intended to replace routine visits to a dental health professional.

A representative from Lambton Public Health will call your school to book your screening date. Call 519-383-8331 to learn more about dental screening at your school or programs to support your student’s in accessing services.

Active Transportation

Being active on the way to school helps prepare students for learning by improving cognitive development and brain health, as well as memory and attention in the classroom. It can also help build social connections and independence. More students walking or wheeling to school means fewer vehicles, less congestion and emissions, and improved safety. For support increasing active transportation at your school, please contact the School Health Coordinator at

Exchange/Temporary International Students Immunization Records

A Guide for Exchange Students provides information and direction to exchange (or temporary international) students, their parents or guardians, and to exchange student agencies about immunization requirements to attend schools in the County of Lambton or Municipality of Chatham- Kent.

Exchange students attending a school in Lambton County or Chatham-Kent will only be admitted to school if their immunization status has been reviewed according to Ontario’s Immunization of School Pupils Act (ISPA).
