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.

LICE HEAD CHECK NIGHT AT WES
Wellington Elementary Parents –
Thursday night, September 11th, has been set aside as Lice Head Check Night at Wellington Elementary. We will not actually gather at the school for this. It is simply a night for all parents to diligently check their children for lice at home.
On Friday, September 12th, students who participated in this event can return the bottom portion of the letter that will be going home the week of September 8th. The returned letter with a parents signature will be entered into a drawing for a WES spirit wear t-shirt.
Thank you in advance to our fabulous WES parents for helping us to be Lice Free!
