After dealing with a recent (and sustained) intrusion of lice into our beloved 107 population, we are having a school-wide lice check TOMORROW, Wednesday, November 13th.
We are looking for a few volunteers to help the professional lice company keep the students organized as they wait for their turn to be checked, and transport children down to the main office if needed.
Don't worry. You won't be doing the doing the checking. We've got professionals for that.
Please sign up below if you can help. It is a relaxed environment; the professionals are wonderful! You will have the chance to meet every teacher in the school, see all the students, and meet new parents.
About Lice Checks
The DOE has a “no head lice” policy for all NYC public schools, but no longer a “no nit” policy. Students found to have live head lice will be sent home and not allowed to return until they are lice-free. Students with nits and no evidence of live head lice will not be excluded from school. However, as a courtesy to parents, if your child is found to have nits during one of the lice checks, you will be informed.
