An elementary school in Jackson received a new water filtration system to promote that water is cool at school.
The Delta Dental Foundation and MESSA were behind the installation of the system, along with a bottle filling station at Northeast Elementary in Jackson.
“We are thrilled to have this investment from the Delta Dental Foundation and MESSA to help the oral and overall health of our students and staff,” said Principal Erik Weatherwax of Northeast Elementary. “The water filtration and bottle system is a quick and easy way for our students and entire school community to stay hydrated – and provides an easy way to choose to drink water instead of reaching for sugary drinks.”
