Wow, It’s been a busy beginning to our school year. I have seen tummy aches, cold and allergy symptoms and head lice. The head lice is contained to one family and is well under control. Just a note on policy/procedure for head lice. It is no longer typical to send home notices or check entire classrooms due to one case of head lice in a classroom. If I begin to see a trend or more than one case in a classroom I will determine how to proceed. In all likelihood a notice would go home. Please remember research has shown that head lice is spread outside of school, mostly from social events (i.e. sleepovers, camp).
Attached is some info on mosquito borne illness.
