Although it is not a health emergency, many families' time, emotions, and finances are burdened by lice infestation. If lice is putting a strain on your time, finances, or stress level, feel free to contact the school nurse for support as procedures are in place to help our families where we can.
If you need someone to talk to, email us to get in touch with another Wade King parent who has been through it before.
You can also check out the Bellingham Public Schools advice for head lice management.
Struggling with behavior problems with your child?
At Wade King Elementary, there are several strategies used by teachers and other staff to help students with making positive decisions. Kelso's Wheel of Choices is one strategy that students begin learning when they are in kindergarten. This model helps students take steps to solve their problems independently. Check out the Positive Discipline website to see other strategies that are being implemented at school and to learn more about what you can do at home.
