 President's Day is Monday February 20th

The colorful printed MCPS hanging calendar distributed at the beginning of the school year reflects a misprint on the February calendar page. Please note the correction: President's Day is Monday, February 20th not Monday, February 13. There will be no school for MCPS students in grades K-12 or preschool on Monday, February 20, 2017.

Since head lice is not uncommon in school age children, the district wants to remind parents of resources and the school procedures which are located on the district website > student services > health services > head lice. You may also contact the family resource centers or the school nurse for written information or resources.

Remember that:

·  People usually don’t have symptoms of having head lice for several weeks after becoming infested. A common symptom is itching which is also common with dandruff and dry skin.

· People get head lice from other infested people mostly when they have head to head contact as head lice do not fly, swim or jump.

· It’s easier to treat head lice when found “early” so checking hair for head lice at home is important for any symptoms or even periodically.
