Dear Parents and Caregivers
Remember that first day of school in the yard?!
Re: Next Week
It is Winter Recess, Monday, February 16 – Friday, February 20
Before we break, a few reminders and dates to put on the radar:
Lice seems to be a part of all communities… Please check your backpacks for a pink letter full of information coming home today or tomorrow. The good news is, you can be ProActive, be aware and check you children regularly. If you see your child scratching his/her head, this could be a sign- look carefully. Invest in a lice comb. If you find you have lice, it is a good practice to let others in your class know to check their kids. Let your teachers know. Anyone can get lice and if we can shift the stigma, get better at checking and be diligent, we can get ahead of their game. (no pun intended) Feel free to do your own research, learn more about lice, you will find there are different home remedies, there are professionals to call and there are preventative measures to take. The staff is also taking precautions within the classrooms. Please read the letter we send home or see the link below. If I can be of any further help, don’t hesitate to call on me. Direct link to the Lice Letter click here.
