Friday, December 10, 2010

There's more to say about the day than in the photo.

We continue to be challenged by head lice. Hannah's mom generously offered to stay most of the morning to carefully check everyone's head for lice. We had to send one child home from kindergarten for further treatment. Please look in the Friday folder for a note from the office about how you can help us prevent the spread of this nuisance of a pest. If your child does have head lice, please carefully and completely follow the advice of your professional health practitioner. Thank you.

Gavin leaves for a trip to South Africa to visit family for a summery Christmas season. (I'm listening to a concert recorded in South Africa as I write this). He'll be gone until mid January. We'll miss him! Travel safely, have fun and enjoy your trip!

Several people told me that they're missing Hudson.

Me too! It was so nice to have him in our class.

Have a good weekend.

As a hairstylist for many years I have learned Tea Tree shampoo or oil keep lice away. Paul Mitchell makes a good shampoo and conditioner. If anyone wants it I can get it for you wholesale for about 7.00 a bottle. You can also buy Tea Tree Oil at Whole Foods or a similar store and add a few drops to any shampoo. Also, spray your childs head with a little hairspray, they don't seem to be able to attach to it. If anyone has a MAJOR problem there is a salon in Mill Valley called Bug A Lugz and all they do is get rid of lice.

Shari, thank you for sharing this information. She's the expert on this sort of thing. I'm wondering, does hair gel work as well as hair spray?
