​HEAD LICE--There have been cases of Head Lice found at school in the last few days. Heading in to the March Break we would like everyone to please check and monitor their child and treat if Live Lice or Nits are found. Also, please recheck them before returning after the break. If live lice are found they need to be cleared up before returning to school. It is a good practice during the school year, especially after breaks and in warmer weather to make sure you are doing random head checks for Lice at home. Information was sent home in the Fall regarding what to look for and how to treat and if anyone wishes to have that information sent home again let us know and we can send it home with your child​.
