Welcome from the Nurse!
It’s that time as we prepare for the start of a new school year, with the 1-2-3's.
- New Knapsack
- New Sneakers
- Lice Check (Very Important!)
Ask any child and they will tell you how important the choices of the first two are, but starting the school year with a lice- and nit-free head should really be top of the list.
In order to insure a smooth, uninterrupted opening to the school year, we are asking each parent to check their child’s head for evidence of head lice.
This is a simple procedure that should take only a few minutes of your day, but will save you endless hours of work, if your child has lice and it is caught early.
Attached you will find a guide to help you and your family to identify, remove and prevent a lice infestation.
It is important to remember that diligence is our best line of defense. Periodic checking is imperative. All of us here at East Hills are looking forward to a happy, healthy, lice free year!
