Our next school-wide Lice Check is Tuesday, February 27, from 9am to 12pm.
Volunteers will 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. 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.
Because we are anticipating a busy and complicated schedule that day, we are looking for a few people who can volunteer for the whole morning. Please sign up below if you would like to volunteer and are available from 8:45-11:45am.
About Lice Checks
The PTA organizes four school-wide lice checks throughout the school year. Every family is asked to pay $15 per student at the beginning of the school year to help defray the cost. The first lice check will be in September and subsequent checks will be after school holidays.
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.
