Teach your child not to share combs, brushes, hats, ribbons, and other personal items with other children. Periodically, check your child’s hair for signs of head lice. Please be aware that hair length does not influence infestation; therefore, there is no need to cut the hair.
Your child should not miss one day of school due to nits or lice. We ask that your child return to school the following school day, after treatment. Nits/head lice are not considered to be a communicable disease, but if a chronic, untreated infestation persists, your child may be sent home from school until treated. The school nurse/health clerk may check your child after treatment in order to assist you in managing head lice.
