MSC Friday Blast!

Blast Includes:
  • Letter from our PTA Co-Pres, Alison and Andree
  • The Annual Appeal Participation Rate is at 18%
Dear Families,
We know that many classes have multiple cases of lice. Many parents have contacted their teachers with information, so we wanted to compile some of it, and send it out so together we can STOP the LICE!
What we need every single family to do is check for lice this weekend. Attached is a youtube video of how to check for nits. There is an endless amount of information online, this is just one video to help you identify if your child has nits. If you have nits, you have lice. 
There are special salons that will check for nits for you! Here are a few (there are definitely more, but these came to us from families who have had experience with them):
Hair Fairies. 212-719-5222, $30 for screening. Multiple locations
Vardit Salon 646-279-1516 $15 for screening 102nd between West End and Bdwy
LiceEnders 212-759-5200 Free Screening, Multiple locations
There are different prices for the screenings, and then if you choose to get it treated at a salon, there is a wide range of costs. So please call and ask before you go!
Some make house calls, so you can ask about that too.
There are many different methods for treatment, and you need to find the one that works for your family. 
We have some very talented “nit finder” teachers, and they are all working together to spread their knowledge. Parents can’t officially come into classrooms to look for nits/lice on other children, but if you are a parent who has been through this before, feel free to spread your expertise.
We really need 100% of families on board to get control of this outbreak.

Let's do this!
