Head Lice Information

Head Lice Information

images44As of 2016, we are in the process of re-writing out policy. If nits are discovered we are recommending students immediately seek treatment. Our school nurse advises students to keep their hair short or if their hair is long to keep it back in a pony tail, braid, or bun. Do not share hats.

Although there is nothing "dirty" about having lice, some children and parents are embarrassed by it.  As child care providers, we keep all cases of lice confidential and are encouraging children and parents to do the same.  It is very important that our school and child care personnel are informed if lice is detected in your child's hair.  We appreciate your corporation around this and how much of a distraction this has been for some of our families.
