Head Lice Information

 Head lice is common in many countries, however, in the U.S., a stigma is unnecessarily attached to it.  “Head lice can be a nuisance but have not been shown to spread disease,” (CDC, 2015).  Checking your child for head lice should be a routine health practice, just like bathing and brushing teeth.  Check your child’s head weekly in a room with strong lighting, a magnifying glass (if available) and using a fine-toothed comb or lice comb.  Part the hairs on the scalp and comb through it, paying special attention to the crown of the head, behind the ears and the nape of the neck.  Look at the comb to see if there’s anything on it. If you think your child has head lice, please contact the school nurse, Kim Rocco 425-837-7408; roccok@issaquah.wednet.edu.  She is happy to check for you and can provide resources on how to solve the issue.  For more information on head lice, go to: https://www.cdc.gov/parasites/lice/head/index.html

ATTENTION PARENTS OF 5TH GRADERS TRANSITIONING TO MIDDLE SCHOOL IN THE FALL OF 2019

SUMMER TIME = SPORTS PHYSICAL TIME

Will your student be participating in the sports programs offered at middle school?  If so, mark your calendar and plan to get their sports physical during the summer.   Students entering 6th and 9th grade are required to have a physical dated after June 1.   A physical date in the summer is valid for the entire school year.  If you normally schedule your child’s physical around their birthday, we suggest you consider postponing until summer.  Fifth grade students getting their physical while in the 5th grade will be required to get a second physical dated after June 1 if they want to participate in middle school sports.   For more information on middle school sports and the required physical form check out the ISD Middle School Sports webpage or call the middle school office.  The office team will answer all your questions.
