Thanks to all the LILA family and friends who supported the PTO by attending Turkey Bingo on Friday night!  Over 300 people attended and 15 lucky winners won a turkey!  Lots of fun had by all! Look for Spring Bunny Bingo to come in April! Thanks to everyone who helped out at the event!

  • From Nurse Jill: Got lice? We hope not! However, schools all over the state are seeing increases in cases of the tiny pesks. As a friendly reminder, any student who has been treated for lice (including removing both live bugs and their eggs) should stop in at the office for a nit check before returning to class. Parents will be notified to pick up students found to have lice so they can be treated. Thank you for doing your part in preventing the spread of lice at LILA! ~ Jill Rosenthal, RN, LILA Health Services
