There is a letter coming home tonight explaining a concern for lice in our classroom. Please read the letter and the attached tips for lice. I am following all precautions to not spread it further, but your help is needed also. Tomorrow is going to be colder outside which means more clothing coming to school. Please send either a trash bag or a grocery sack that the students can put their items in during the day.
I read a story to the class today called Bugs in my Hair. It is a story about a boy who gets lice and does a very good job teaching the kids about it. We had quite a long talk about how anyone can get lice, but if it happens it’s very important for it to be treated. The students were able to ask questions and some even felt comfortable enough to share experiences they have had with it. If they still have questions tonight and you aren’t sure how to answer them please let me know. After you read the letter and you still have questions please email me.
