Head Lice

  • Headlice-Be-Gone.jpg

    Head lice can be common in the fall and spring months. Head lice are nothing to be embarrassed about! There are millions of cases in the United States each year. Head lice are tiny insects that live on the human scalp. They do not fly or jump, and can only be spread from head to head by crawling. If you notice that your child is scratching or complaining of itching of the head, please follow these steps.

    Examine your child's scalp for any signs of nits(eggs) or lice. (Eggs are attached to the hair very near the scalp.) Discourage head to head contact and sharing of combs, barrettes or hats.

    If eggs and/or lice are found, please notify the school so that any outbreak can be contained.
