Tips and info:
SIGNS & SYMPTOMS:
Itching behind the ears and above the neck. Some people will show no symptoms.
Nits (eggs) hatch in 10-14 days. Adults live 3-4 weeks.
HOW IS IT SPREAD?
Head lice are spread by direct contact with the head of an infested person, or by contact with items used by an infested person (such as combs, brushes, and hats). Lice cannot hop or fly.
HOW LONG CAN A PERSON PASS THE INFECTION TO OTHERS?
A person is contagious as long as they are infested with live lice or nits close to the scalp that have not yet hatched.
EXCLUDED FROM SCHOOL:
Children should be excluded with an active infestation from time of discovery until after the first treatment (nits need not be removed, although recommended).
Trick or Treat Safety: Children should be taught never to eat the candy they've received until you have carefully inspected it. It's best to throw away unwrapped candy, homemade items and fruit. Keep small candies from children under the age of five, it is a choking hazard. Keep chocolate candy, raisins, and macademia nuts away from dogs. It is toxic to them, even in small amounts. Be safe and have fun out there.

Ross Montessori Charter School buys land in Carbondale for new school building
Carbondale, CO – The Ross Montessori Charter School and the Mark Ross Montessori Foundation have finalized the purchase of almost three acres in Carbondale to be the new home of the school. After years of searching for the perfect location and securing funding, the first phase of construction over the next 12 to 16 months will build a school to accommodate students from kindergarten through eighth grade.
Ross Montessori Charter School has provided Montessori education in Carbondale for ten years. The new facility will increase enrollment, opening the school up to more students seeking a Montessori education in a public charter school. “The Ross Montessori School Board and Mark Ross Montessori Foundation Board are grateful for the support of community members and the families of our students. Their generosity made this land purchase possible,” said Shelly Sheppick, School Board President and parent of two students at Ross. “A new facility for Ross has been a dream of everyone in the Ross family for many years and the project to buy land and secure funding has been a labor of love for many people who see the great work the faculty of Ross have been able to do in their current facility. In a new home, I am sure the school will surpass our boldest dreams,” continued Sheppick.
The Mark Ross Montessori Foundation has secured funding for the building’s first phase through a loan from the Rural Development Program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The School Board of Ross Montessori Charter School is currently working through a letter of conditions to finalize the loan. “The Foundation is pleased to reach this point for the school. The purchase of the land for Ross’ new home is significant for the Carbondale community and the students of Ross,” said Robin Cole, Mark Ross Montessori Foundation President. “The first phase of construction will allow for over ten percent increase in enrollment. The second phase of construction will expand enrollment to even more students after that,” said Cole. The Foundation plans to continue its capital campaign efforts and realize phase two in the next three to five years.
Ross Montessori Charter School, established in 2004, follows the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori, which emphasizes self-directed, purposeful activities in a prepared environment. Dr. Montessori’s work found that meaningful hands-on projects, along with the time to do those projects at his or her own pace, create learning in personal and powerful ways.
