  4. LICE911 FOLLOW-UP A technician from Lice911 has been booked to come back for a follow-up head check on Thurs, Nov 16th. In the meantime we ask that you remain diligent in checking and treating your children. Please also remember that as part of the service to North Star, if you have any questions or concerns you can contact a representative through www.LICE911.com. In addition, you can also visit their clinic in Maple Ridge where parents can bring their children to be screened. There is no charge for any screening done in their office so it’s handy for students who were absent and the extended family of those who were diagnosed.
  5. ANNUAL FUNDRAISER The North Star Annual Fundraiser is in the process of being re-scheduled for January. Please continue to collect auction items for this fun event and stay tuned for the new date announcement!
  6. REPORTING ILLNESS A reminder for parents to please phone in to the school and leave a message rather than email if your child is sick so that any staff member is able to access the information.
