Solar Eclipse 2017

On August 21st, Central students and faculty will be viewing the Solar Eclipse. We have purchased enough glasses for every student and faculty member to view the eclipse that afternoon. It is very important that all students wear these glasses in order to prevent serious eye damage. If you would like your child to sit out and not view the eclipse, please contact their teacher and make them aware. We are excited to view this celestial event!

Please be aware that lice is ever present in school buildings. Please take the time to check your child’s hair once a week and take care of anything that is found.

To prevent infestation try some of these suggestions.

· Keep boys hair short clean cut

· Keep girls hair pulled up and spray with hair spray.

· Instruct your children to: not share hairbrushes, hats, or hug on friends.

· Lice cannot jump they only crawl. They are quick and spread quickly.
