Cary Elementary School Directory

Hello CES Parents,

The PTA will be publishing our Student Directory again this year.  You should have received the flyer containing your current address and phone number listed in the WCPSS system for your student(s).  This is your opportunity to make changes to your address and/or phone number or to opt out of the directory.  You will need to return the form to the office or to your student’s teacher by this Friday, September 30th.  The directory will be sent to the printer at the beginning of October.  The directory is only distributed to CES students (one per family) and staff. All flyers are destroyed after use.

Thank you!
Please contact Melisa Turner if you have any questions.

Knowing the facts and how to recognize and treat head lice before it occurs is your best defense against an outbreak!   Here are some basic facts about lice to keep in mind. The link that follows will take you to more extensive information and resources.

Fast Facts:

  • An estimated 6 to 12 million infestations occur each year among U.S. children ages 3-11
  • Head lice often infest people with good hygiene
  • Head lice move by crawling; they cannot jump or fly
  • Head lice do not transmit disease; they do spread with close head-to-head contact

Prevention of spread:

  • Check your child’s scalp often for nits and live lice – it is helpful to use a bright light and magnifying glass
  • Do not to share personal items such as hats, scarves, combs and brushes
  • Keep the information in the links below handy for quick reference!

In summary: current knowledge, early recognition and treatment options may well be the difference between a few cases and an outbreak of head lice. Let us help you “stay in the know”!
