Lice Screening

6 Sep

This year Bakersfield Public School, in conjunction with The Lice Crew, will be offering professional head lice screening services for those who wish. The Lice Crew is a pre-approved service provider in our school board. Each participating student will be screened using individual screening sticks and will be examined using professional magnification equipment in a discreet and friendly manner.

The Lice Crew will be conducting three checks throughout the school year, with the first check on September 16th, followed by January 23rd and April 10th. If you wish for your child to be screened, a payment of $4.00 is required on School Cash Online by Wednesday, September 14th, 2016. The payment covers all three lice checks.

For families new to York Region District School Board or with children attending school for the first time, registering for School Cash On-line involves three simple steps outlined here.   Registration involves using your child’s unique student number, which will be sent home with new students to the district.  Remember, you only ever have to register and ‘add’ your school-age children once.  This registration will follow your children across each grade and across any school in our board.  Please note, School Cash On-line works best with Internet Explorer 11 (or higher) or Chrome.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the office.
