Published on May 11, 2017 15:56

Pediculosis (Head Lice) can occur in any household. Head lice and cleanliness have nothing in common. We respectfully request that parents/guardians check all the heads in your household on a regular basis. If you find that your child has head lice, please contact the school. This information will be kept confidential but it is important to let others know of the risk. 

It is imperative that your child is clear of all nits. Nits can attach to hair and remain there until they are pulled free. Your child can return to school once you are sure they are free and clear of head lice.
