Message from Our School Nurses

Dear Parents/Guardians,

The district nurses would like to take this opportunity to share information about the identification and management of head lice, especially with summer on the way. As always, please do not hesitate to call your school nurse with questions or concerns. 

Message follows:

Head lice are a common community problem.  An estimated 6 to 12 million infestations occur each year in the United States, most commonly among children ages 3 to 11 years old.  Though a head lice infestation is often spotted in school, it is usually acquired through direct head-to-head contact elsewhere, such as at sleepovers or camp. Head lice are not dangerous, and they do not transmit disease. Additionally, despite what you might have heard, head lice often infest people with good hygiene and grooming habits. Your family, friends, or community may experience head lice.  It’s important to know some basics, including how to recognize symptoms and what to do if faced with an infestation. Please see the attached information sheets below for more information.
