HEAD LICE ALERT (and steps that may help to prevent it)!
Baseball Season is here—REMEMBER DON’T SHARE HATS/HELMETS!
Make it a family affair and perform weekly head checks to look for lice and nits.
Lice and nits are very small, so use a bright light and/or magnifying glass when checking for them. Outdoor light is best.
Avoid sharing personal items such as hats, coats, brushes, hair accessories or pillows.
If your child is scratching their head more than usual, this is a warning sign. Check for lice and nits!
Keep long hair in a braid or ponytail.
If lice is found on your child’s head, he or she must be treated before returning to school.
If you have any questions, please contact Merilee Corbit, School Nurse, at 206-252-1974 or email@example.com.

Parent Volunteer Opportunity – Recycling Coordinator, Join the Green Team
Four years ago, Blaine started recycling and composting in the cafeteria. Prior to that, everything just went into the garbage! In order to ensure that items are sorted correctly, student volunteers from 3rd through 5th grade monitor the recycling stations. Karen Kubota started the program and has been coordinating it for the last four years, but when her 8th-grader finishes school in June, she will no longer be a Blaine parent, so we need someone to take over starting in the fall. Responsibilities include: Coordinating classrooms that are participating in monitoring the stations, purchasing supplies as needed (you are reimbursed for these), training weekly student monitors each Monday from 12:00-1:30.
More than one parent volunteer to conduct weekly trainings would be ideal! Please contact Karen Kubota if you are interested at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 285-8075. Again if you aren’t able to volunteer for all of the duties, but would like to be involved, let us know, the job could be shared by more than one person!
