Friday Feel Good: Monitoring Milestones

Friday Feel Good #1 7-31-20USD 407's Monitoring Milestone project provides glucose meters and diabetic testing supplies to all four student attendance buildings in the district.

The Russell Schools Apple Seed Fund awarded the district a grant to directly purchase the needed supplies, including four sets of True Metrix Blood Glucose Meters, control solution, test strips, lancets and alcohol prep pads.

These supplies are used when students are without their own private blood sugar testing equipment, ensuring the student is tested and treated accurately during school hours.

"Thanks to this generous grant, Monitoring Milestones is on its way to be a safety net for USD 407 students in each building," says grantee Cecelia Morse.
