DRESSING FOR THE WEATHER

Cooler weather is here and with that comes the boots, hats, gloves, snow pants and coats that children bring bring to school.

Please be sure to label all clothing! Also, encourage your child not to share their hat with other students. The best defense against unwanted critters in your student’s hair is to check his/her head weekly. Head lice is a common problem during the colder weather in Michigan. Catching it early is our best defense against lice. The link below will lead you to a publication that the State of Michigan published about Head Lice.
