Healthy hair checks are being conducted at Northwood. Lice is present. Please check your child’s hair. Hot spots are at the back of the neck and behind the ears but nits and lice can be found anywhere if an infestation has occurred. Simple tips include storing hair brushes in plastic bags to prevent spreading among family members, periodically tossing pillows in the dryer, and tossing backbacks in the dryer for at least 30 minutes. If you are unsure what you are looking for, you can contact the office, the Health & Wellness committee, the public health department or your pediatrician. Some parents have had success preventing lice using hair products containing tea tree oil. The Lice Brigade was given a very good recommendation by a parent after lice was discovered in their home.
Our committee is planning activities for “unplugged week” in February. Stay tuned for future notices for events planned that week.
Have a great week and get out there and play!
