Unfortunately, a number of parents have been observed entering the bus circle before 9:00 AM and while students are unloading from busses. In addition, some cars have passed school buses while their lights were blinking which is illegal and a moving violation. For the safety of our students, please be sure to use the Hall Avenue entrance if you are dropping off your child before 9:00 AM. If you arrive after 9:00 AM, you will need to find alternate parking and escort your child into the school. The details of our practices at Waverly School are outlined on page 5 of the Family Handbook.

HI,This sounds very reasonable. I did have one question. If a parent knows of a business owner who wants to place an ad, how will that ad be created?Also, since there you posted the different due dates in red and purple on the bottom of the email, I think I might change the color to match on the top as well.I would also suggest sending a follow-up blast the following week with wording similar to:UPCOMING DEADLINES FOR YEARBOOKS:Ads- March 16thOrders- April 19thAnd then the links.

There have been several cases of head lice reported in both kindergarten and first grade. This is
not uncommon for this age group in kindergarten and first grade.
The two biggest myths about head lice are:
1. Head lice fly or jump from head to head … False… They crawl (not fly or jump); no one is immune to head lice; anyone who is in close contact (head to head), to someone who already has the parasite is at risk.
2. Only dirty people contact head lice … False… Personal hygiene or cleanliness in the home have nothing to do with getting head lice. They prefer clean hair so they can hang on and move around freely. They are not fond of hair spray, gels and other hair products.
Anyone can get head lice!
Steps to prevent the spread of head lice:
1. Avoid head-to-head (hair-to-hair) contact during play and other activities at home, school, etc. (It is recommended to keep girl’s hair braided or in a ponytail and boy’s hair short) Using hair products that make the hair stiff may also help.
2. Check hair each night.
3. Do not share clothing such as hats, scarves, sports uniforms and headgear, hair ribbons, etc.
4. Do not share combs, brushes, linens or towels.
5. At school, if a student is identified with nits/lice, coats in that classroom are put into plastic bags and sealed and the custodial dept. is notified. Any child who is identified to have head lice or nits is sent home. Every student from that class is then checked and rechecked every 2 to 3 days.
If you have any questions, or if your child is scratching his/her head call Mrs. Kaessler in the morning. She’ll give you an appointment to check your child’s head.
What to do if your child has head lice:
1. Speak to your pediatrician about the best products and services available.
2. Make sure to follow all instructions on products.
3. Check all members of the family.
4. Please contact the school nurse at 793-6130 Ext. 5509.
5. Remove all nits.
6. Wash clothes, bed linens and towels in hot water. Bag stuffed animals.
7. Soak combs, brushes, etc. in hot water.
8. Vacuum everywhere including car seats, rugs and sofas (anyplace that has contact with your child’s head).
In order to return to school, a parent must bring the child to the nurse’s office at 8:30 a.m. to be cleared before the child is allowed to return to their classroom. We have a no nit policy.

A doctor’s note is required if your child needs to be excused from gym due to and illness and/or injury. A follow-up note is needed from the doctor when they are able to return to physical activity. Your child will not be able to return to gym/recess unless a doctor’s note is received.
Please note that if your child is excused from gym, that means he or she is also excused from recess time.
Parents of any child who is injured at home and receives sutures, glue-bond, or who is casted or splinted must report the incident to the nurse’s office. A doctor’s note is needed upon return to school stating nature of injury, specific restrictions and follow-up date with the doctor. Upon recovery, a follow-note from the doctor is required before the child can return to full activity. There are NO EXCEPTIONS.
Guidelines to follow when deciding to send you child to school:
1) Fever - Do not send your child to school with a fever. A child must remain at home 24 hours after a fever has subsided with no medication given. Please do not give your child Tylenol or Motrin in the morning and send him or her to school.
Example: Fever on Monday. Stays home on Tuesday (rest day and no medication) and may return to school on Wednesday.
2) Cold and Cough – If your child has a bad cold and/or cough, a persistent runny nose or sneezing, please have him or her rest at home until symptoms subside. If your child suffers from seasonal allergies and takes medication for this, please make sure that this information is on record in the nurse’s office.
3) Rash – Do not send your child to school with a rash. Please consult your doctor. Rashes must be diagnosed and determined non-contagious and your child may only return to school with a doctor’s note detailing diagnosis and treatment. The child must remain at home if the rash is diagnosed contagious.
4) Vomiting/Diarrhea – Your child should remain home if he or she has had these symptoms in the morning or the evening before school. A child must remain home 24 hours after vomiting and/or diarrhea has subsided and he or she is feeling better (no nausea, no cramps) and is eating normally.
Example: Vomited and/or diarrhea on Monday. Stays home on Tuesday (rest day) and may return to school on Wednesday.
5) Chicken Pox – Please keep your child home from the initial onset of chicken pox until all lesions are dry. A doctor’s note with diagnosis must be presented upon return to school.
6) Conjunctivitis - A child diagnosed with conjunctivitis should stay home until there is no discharge and the eye no longer appears pink. Please report contagious conjunctivitis to the nurse.
7) Strep – A child diagnosed with strep must stay home for 48 hours from the start of medication. Please report strep to the nurse.
8) Head Lice – A child cannot be re-admitted to school until all nits (both viable and nonviable) are removed. Contact your doctor for advice on treatment and follow all directions carefully. Parents must bring the child to the nurse’s office to be checked before he or she is allowed to go to their classroom. If nits are found, the child will not be permitted in class.
If your child is sick, please do not give in to their pleas to come to school because of a party or activity they are afraid to miss. It is unfair to your child, the other students and the staff. The parent must make the right decision.
**WHEN YOUR CHILD IS SENT HOME FROM SCHOOL DUE TO ILLNESS (FEVER, VOMITING AND/OR DIARRHEA) SCHOOL POLICY IS YOUR CHILD MUST ALSO STAY HOME FROM SCHOOL THE FOLLOWING DAY**
