'Tis The Season!
As the weather gets colder and hats and coats come out the chance of your student getting head lice increases. Head lice do not carry any diseases and can only be spread by head to head contact or contact with an item that has head lice on it. They do not fly, jump, or hop off of the head. The main symptom of head lice is a child who complains of an itchy scalp, especially at the crown or behind the ears. At the elementary level if a student in your child's class is found to have head lice a note will be sent home to that class. The note will not identify the student. We ask that you check your child's hair periodically over the winter. If you are concerned your child may have head lice please contact the school to inform the nurse. It is important to remind your child to not share any hats, coats, sweatshirts, or hair accessories with others. If you have any questions regarding head lice please contact the school at 378-2861 and ask to speak to the school nurse.
If your student has had a bathroom accident while at school, please consider putting a change of clothing in their backpack in case of a future accident. Back-up clothing in the health office, especially pants and leggings, can get low when none have been returned. Donations of new underwear and new or used leggings or other stretchy pants are always welcomed. Thank you!
