Lice Giving You Trouble
Lice are a social nuisance, not a health problem. Their pressence has nothing to do with being dirty or clean. They don't carry disease or cause illness. Knowing this, they do cause itching and redness on a childs scalp. Parents should: check their children's head weekly for signs of an infestation. Notify the school when their child has lice, as well as others who may have come in contact with the child. The school will send home Form 321-1 for parents to complete and return to the school.
Lice Giving You Trouble?
Lice are tiny insects with flat bodies and claws. "Nits" are lice eggs. They're white to grey and they glue to the hair. They can look like a fleck of dandruff, but you will not be able to move it off the hair strand.The first sign may be itching and scratching. The best way to know for sure is to look for live lice on the scalp, particularly around the ears and back of the neck, Using a magnifying glass makes it easier.
Remeber, None of the products on the market kill 100% of the nits. That's why a second treatment is needed. Read the attached article Lice giving You Trouble for more information.

Northern Environmental Research And Development Studies NHHS
The Northern Environmental Research Program is a four credit program which will be offered to Grade 12 students, during the second semester. This program is designed for students who enjoy the outdoors and who may be interested in pursuing a post-secondary college or university career in natural resources, natural sciences, or environmental sciences. Students will be involved in a wide variety of projects. Some of which will include data collection, analysis, and communication of information as part of on-going monitoring and scientific research with numerous local agencies and associations involved in natural resource management and environmental monitoring. Students will have opportunities to work with fish, wildlife, and forestry specialists and have input into the provincial data studies in environment and resource management at the college or university level, as well as experience and contacts for future jobs.
Successful completion of these credits, along with other designated courses, will earn the students a “Specialist High Skills Major in the Environment” seal on the Ontario Secondary School Diploma, as well as acknowledgement on the student’s transcript.
Successful completion of the Environmental Research Program with an average of 70% or greater, along with Math 4C, will also allow a student to enter directly into the second semester of any undergraduate program within the Sir Sandford Fleming Collage School of Natural Resources, through an articulation agreement, thus saving one semester of tuition, accommodation, and transportation.
