Head Lice

Head lice can be a nuisance, but with the proper knowledge about how to identify and treat these pesky pests, you can get rid of them and prevent future infestation. 

Your student will not be excluded from school for having head lice unless it becomes a health issue (for example, your student has scratched their head so much that they have open sores on their scalp). 

Your School Nurses have many resources and are available by telephone and email to answer any questions you may have. Please click on the links below for further information.
