ELL Program Placement Letters for Remote Learners
In previous years, ELL Program Placement Letters have gone home with students via backpack mail. Because we don't have that option for our remote learners this year, these letters will be sent out in the mail, arriving in the next week or two. If you receive a letter, it is simply for your information, and you do not need to send or bring it back to school. Please contact RIchmond's ELL Teacher, Samantha Stewart (firstname.lastname@example.org or 630.228.5451), if you have any questions about your student's ELL programming. Thank you!
HEALTH OFFICE CONNECTION
Every year cases of head lice are found in people all over our community, and do not reflect poor hygiene or social status. Anytime children come together, whether at overnight camp, the movie theater, or at school, there is an increased risk of identified head lice cases. Head lice is primarily transmitted through direct head-to-head contact or from sharing hats, brushes, and other personal items. In an effort to assist parents and guardians with their awareness regarding head lice prevention, detection and treatment we provide a Health Services page on the District 303 website that outlines the control and management of lice in our schools. On that page you will also find information about the District’s approach to lice management in the school setting.
Parents play an integral part in the prevention and detection of head lice in their children. To prevent the spread of this communicable condition, please check your child(ren) regularly for evidence of lice. If you should discover a case of head lice, please notify the health office at your child’s school, as well as your child’s outside activity directors. The nurses in the health office will assist you with identification of a probable case and resources for care.
With regard to preventative treatment, parents are encouraged to seek guidance from their health care provider prior to using any treatment options. Since mass screenings do not reduce the incidence of head lice, they are not conducted in our schools. Research has shown that a "no lice" "no nit" policy for schools hinders academic attendance and performance, while doing little to change the incidence of lice. Because the life cycle of a louse is 3 to 4 weeks, often students have had an infestation for many days before the case is identified. If a cluster (two or more identified cases in one classroom over a few week’s period) is identified by school personnel, the health office will send a letter home notifying parents.
Like many health matters, prevention is key. Please assist your child by reinforcing the message taught at school to avoid head to head contact and the sharing of personal items. The nurses in the health office maintain strict confidentiality on all student concerns and we will never share your child’s personal information on this matter.
Thank you for partnering with your child’s school to prevent the spread of lice among our student population. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call your school nurse.
