Head Lice Reminder-Head lice occasionally occur in school age children.  It is a treatable condition that does not cause disease. The first sign of head lice is usually an itchy scalp.  Head lice are about the size of a sesame seed, light yellow to brown and cannot hop, fly or jump.  Lice eggs, called nits, are tiny, tear-shaped and white to yellowish-brown in color.  They are glued to the hair and are most often found above and behind the ears and at the back of the neck.  Please check your child’s hair for signs of lice whenever you comb or shampoo their hair. If you suspect your child has lice, and are unsure of what to do, please call your doctor for advice and notify the school nurse.  Encourage your child to keep their coat/hat/headbands away from other children’s belongings.  Please check the Colonial School District website www.colonialsd.org for more information. 

Flu season is upon us and it is best for your child and the school community to keep exposure to germs at a minimum.  We ask that you have a plan in place in the event that your child should be ill and needs to stay home from school.  For the safety of our Ridge Park Elementary family, please do not send your child to school ill. Children should be free of fever (< 100.0), vomiting and diarrhea for 24 hours without medicine before they return to school. Please model and encourage covering sneezes and coughs (in a tissue or your sleeve) and frequent hand washing.
