LICE HEAD CHECK A SUCCESS!!
Congratulations to Tatyana for winning the drawing for LICE WEEK! We want to keep those creatures at bay and one of the best ways is proactive, preventative checks like Tatyana and many of our other students did last week. We encourage parents to continue checking student’s heads at least once weekly for head lice.

We will be having another school wide LICE DAY CHECK in January. Stay tuned for more details after Winter Break.
