First Lice Check of the Year

Our first lice check of 2012/2013 school year will be held on Tuesday, October 9 (all day) and Thursday, October 11 (morning).

Please ensure your child has clean hair for these dates. It is important your child have clean hair so The Lice Squad can get down to the scalp and check for lice.

Parent volunteers are needed to help escort classes to and from the lice check station.

Three parent volunteers are needed for each of the shifts listed below. One of these volunteers is dedicated to the kindergarten wing.

New Parents: Believe it or not, this is a wonderful way to meet some of the children of Allenby and see for yourself how great they all are. You are NOT checking hair — we have a team of professionals doing that for us. All we need is your help in escorting/supervising small groups of children to and from the lice check station.

Please contact Gillian Uy to volunteer. In your email, let Gillian know your first and second choice of shifts (don’t forget to state which day!).
