Head lice are a common occurrence in schools and can be easily treated. We want to share information to help you identify, treat and prevent the spread of lice:

With the knowledge that the students have sleepovers, birthday parties, organized overnights, and play dates, we hope sharing this information with everyone in our school community will help decrease the spread of head lice. Over the next few months, we recommend that you periodically check your student’s hair for any signs of head lice. It is best to do a head check in natural sunlight

If you find lice on your student, please notify your school nurse so we can help. Your student may return to school as soon as the medicated shampoo/treatment has been used and there are no adult louse present.
