Important Notice to Parents/Guardians
Re: Head Lice
Reminder: Head lice is a continuing problem and you should be checking your child’s hair on a regular basis. Head lice do not carry disease and are not an indication of uncleanliness or a reflection on personal hygiene.
However, if head lice or nits (eggs) are found in your child’s hair it is
important that your child is treated before returning to school or taking
part in social events, in order to prevent the spread of lice to other families.
Examine all other members of the family to see if lice or nits (eggs) are
present. Then treat only those infested persons. Please follow one of the
recommendations outlined in the booklet from Northern Health
Removing all visible nits will ensure successful treatment.
