100-Mile Club

Students in the before school jogging club continue to amaze me with their dedication and perseverance.
As of today, there are 18 students who have received the club t-shirt for reaching the 25 mile marker.
I enjoy seeing the, well deserved, pride in their faces when I present the shirt to them.  
Also, I have received wonderful feedback from parents and teachers about students increased focus and concentration in the classroom.
Healthy Body-Healthy Mind!

As winter approaches, we will be jogging inside the school, around the hallways, when inclement weather is present.

Stop by to join the Popsicle stick brigade or jog with the students!

Live Well,

Southmoor Elementary
    
Dear Parent(s),

Incidents of head lice have occurred in our school.  Head lice in school children is increasing nationwide. 
In Colorado, the problem of head lice control has arisen in several communities.

In an effort to assist parents in understanding the problem, we are sending you this information on control and prevention.
___Beth Ball, RN, BSN___
                                                                                                                           School Nurse

*WHAT ARE THEY?  When a person has head lice or pediculosis, it means a certain kind of louse has
gotten into the hair and is laying eggs called ""nits"" which hatch into more lice.  A louse is a small insect about l/l6th of an inch with an oval, grayish body.

*WHERE ARE THEY FOUND?  Head lice are found on the scalp and first show up in the hair over the ears or the hairline of the neck. 
If not killed, they spread to all parts of the scalp and hair.  The nits or eggs can be seen along the hairs like tiny beads on a thread. 
The nits are shiny, oval in shape, and gray or white in color. 

*WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?   l. Itching of the scalp       2. Nits along the hair shaft

Dandruff can be removed by a light snap of the finger against a hair, but nits stick and can be removed
only by sliding them the length of a hair as you would slide beads off a string.

Anyone can get lice.  It has been said, "It is no disgrace to get lice, but it is a disgrace to keep them".
 If lice are brought into the household, they can spread among all members of a family.
                                                  
*WHAT IS THE TREATMENT?  The infected child and all members of the family should have their
hair shampooed with medicated shampoo that can be bought over the counter, obtained from
your family health care source or the school.  The lice and nits must be killed or they will rehatch in about 7 days
and a new batch of lice will again start the condition.  To prevent reinfestation, hats, caps, scarves, and
other head coverings and combs and brushes should be treated to destroy lice and nits. 
All clothing and bedding used within a month of infestation should be laundered in hot, soapy water or dry cleaned.


SUGGESTIONS:             Short hair aids control measures.
                                            Shampoo hair once with regular shampoo before using medicated shampoo.
                                            Shampoo with warmest possible water. Then using an electric hair dryer may help.
                                            Rinsing with a vinegar rinse may help loosen nits.
Following shampoo, nits must be combed out with a fine-tooth comb or pulled out with fingernails the full length of the hair. 
Nit removal is essential for successful treatment.

If head lice persist after one treatment, review shampooing procedures to make certain it was done properly.
