Notes from the Clinic Weather Reminder-Weather permitting students will be going outside to recess as long as the temperature is 25 degrees or above (this includes the wind chill factor). Please dress your child in winter coats, hats and gloves so they will be warm. Lice- With hats and coats for colder weather comes the potential for students to transmit head lice to lach other: We stress to students that they should not share any items that come in contact with the head or hair (hats, coats, scarves, pony tail holders, brushes, combs, etc.). If you find that your child has head lice please let us know as soon as possible. We make every attempt to minimize the spread of lice but we need your help to do this.
