Elementary Welcome Letter--Read Below for Arrival and Dismissal Updates due to Construction!

Hello La Monte Families,

The 2019-2020 school year is almost underway and oh my goodness we are so excited. We truly miss the kids over the summer and can not wait to see them when school begins. As many of you know, there are lots of amazing changes going on the elementary side of the school, but the elementary office and entrance area and the preschool building are still under construction as school is getting ready to start. 

Due to construction still being completed we will not be able to use the circle drive in front of the elementary or the elementary entrance. DROP-OFF and DISMISSAL of ALL Elementary Students will be through the high school gym doors.  In the morning, students will either wait in the high school gym or head down to the multi for breakfast. We will have teachers supervising the kids and also helping them get where they need to go. Car riders will be dismissed from the gym doors once the buses leave. Please enter using the south entrance and circle around exiting out of the north entrance. We know that this may cause dismissal to take a little longer but we want to keep all kids safe. 

If you need to pick-up your child early from school, you will need to enter through the high school entrance and check them out in the high school office.

PLEASE DO NOT park in front of the Elementary or use the circle drive until Construction is completed. 

We appreciate all your help and understanding as construction is completed.

Thanks for your help,

Amber Knoernschild,

Elementary Principal

New Lice and Nit Policy

Lice and Nit Policy Change information 

Hello parents,

This year our Head Lice and Nit Policy has changed. For the last few years La Monte School was allowing students with nits to be present at school as long as the student had been treated at home. This year the policy has changed to absolutely no nits or lice. We understand that it is very hard to get rid of nits and lice due to the resistance to the over the counter medications. Here are a few suggestions to try along with the medication.

  • Wash all cloth items in hot water and dry using hottest setting possible. If this is not feasible put all cloth items in a sealed trash bag for 2 weeks so the lice can suffocate.  (bedding, book bags,coats, clothing, stuffed animals, etc)

  • Add TeaTree oil to shampoos and conditioners.

  • Saturate infested hair with Olive Oil or Coconut Oil during the night. 

Make sure to follow Lice Treatment instructions to a T. Use Nit comb for removing nits. And Repeat process after 2 weeks even if nits and nice are no longer present. 

I will be starting head checks in the Elementary next week. If anything is found I will be sending the student home. Please be aware that only the parents of the affected student will be informed. Confidentiality is very important. It is important to look over your child's head periodically at home also. I will be doing checks after long breaks such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and spring break. I will also do random checks throughout the year if the teacher or I suspect an issue. 

If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at the school. Also,  please inform the school if you discover lice at home. 

Thank you,

Erin Purchase LPN
