First Lice Check of the Year

louse on hairOur first  lice check of the 2011/2012 school year will be held on Monday, September 26th (all day) and Tuesday, September 27th (until lunch).

Please ensure your child has clean hair for these dates! Last check, the lice squad had a couple of children they were unable to check as they were unable to get down to the scalp.

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

Three parent volunteers are needed for each of the following shifts on BOTH Monday, September 26th and up until lunch time on the Tuesday, September 27th. 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 yourselves how great they all are. You are NOT checking hair – we have a fabulous team of professionals that do that for us. All we need you for is escorting/supervising small groups of children from classes to the lice check station
