October 27, 2017   Dear MPHS Parents/Guardians,  The Midland Park Public High School remains committed to doing whatever possible to help improve the health and well-being of our students, and we know our schools can be powerful places when seeking to foster positive behavioral and environmental changes for students and staff.  Toward that end, we are working toward attaining the Sustainable Jersey for Schools certification, an important recognition indicating our school’s success in conserving resources and implementing green measures.   To help make our schools healthier, MPHS has formed a Green Team to create more sustainable goals, policies and actions.  As the success of our sustainability efforts depends on the collaboration of school and community, we hope you will join us in attaining one of our identified goals: Reducing motor vehicle idling on school grounds. Did you know? Idling is ILLEGAL for more than 3 minutes. Just 10 seconds of idling uses more gasoline than restarting your car. Idling harms your engine and exhaust system. Vehicles emit carcinogens, smog-forming chemicals and greenhouse gases. Vehicles that idle 10 minutes per day waste more than 29 gallons of fuel per year. Exposure to some pollutants from idling is actually higher inside the vehicle than at roadside. Children are especially vulnerable to the dangers of idling:  they breathe faster than adults, inhale more air per pound of body weight, and stand closer to tailpipe level. In an effort to attain this goal, MPHS has: Posted “anti-idling” signs in the front and rear of the buildings where morning drop off and afternoon pick up occur. Anti-idling pledges have been sign by bus drivers. Incorporated anti-idling education in the curriculum.   Please help support this Green Team initiative by NOT idling on school grounds.  Together, we can make Midland Park High School a healthier place for students and staff.   Sincerely, Nicholas Capuano Principal

October 17, 2017  Dear Parents/Guardians:  Five cases of Pediculosis (head lice) have been reported to the nurse at the high school. Head lice is a very common problem among school aged children and their household members. It is important to remember, while head lice is a nuisance it does not carry disease. Personal hygiene or cleanliness in the home or school has nothing to do with getting head lice.  The head louse is a small, multi-legged organism that feeds on human blood. The color may be gray or brown. The female louse lay eggs, also known as nits, which are attached to the hair shaft with a cementing material near the root. The nits appear to be pearly in color and teardrop in shape. The nits cling to the hair shaft and must be brushed or scraped off. Head lice do not jump or fly and generally cannot survive longer than 24 hours off the host.  Head Lice is most commonly contacted by direct head-to-head contact with a person who already has an infestation. Less commonly, it can also be transmitted by sharing personal items such as; combs, brushes, towels, bedding, hats, hair ties, scarves and coats. Please educate children about importance of not sharing any personal items.  If  you suspect your child has head lice, please contact the school nurse immediately. The nurse will inspect the student and the results will remain confidential. Treatment should ONLY be performed if active head lice are found in your child's scalp and treatment should not be applied as a preventative method. If head lice is suspected or found, your child's healthcare provider is the best option for you to contact to determine the most appropriate treatment for your child. Please read the "Head Lice Information Sheet" that accompanies this letter. You  can also reference the CDC (www.cdc.gov) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (www.aap.org) websites for additional information. ? If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Karen Corcoran at the high school.   Sincerely, NicholaS J. Capuano Principal
