Lice Check Day - Friday, December 10th!
Mon, Dec 6 1:48pm

PS 372 Families,

Our 1st Lice Check Day is this Friday, December 10th 

@ ICT - Carroll Street.

Information will be going home in backpacks today. If you do NOT want your child(ren) checked for lice, please return the parental opt out form!

Having lice is in NO WAY a reflection of cleanliness of the home, but getting rid of them does require a concerted effort on the part of our whole community.

DOE Information regarding lice:

In addition to that, we would like to provide a step-by-step pictorial on how to do a lice comb-out. Note that using thick, white conditioner such as Pantene can help capture the critters.  Please remain vigilant in checking your children!

If your child is found to have lice, an administrator will call the child’s parent for an immediate pickup. If your child is found to have nits, a letter will be sent with your child at the end of the day. Children found with lice and nits will be rechecked on Monday.

Any questions or concerns please contact Michelle Dobson at: mishdobson@gmail.com

**The cost of the screenings is covered by the PTA and the lice professionals are vaccinated. The screening will be conducted outside weather permitting.**
