liceEvery year, most schools are confronted with pediculosis, commonly known as head lice. Typically we see increases in cases of head lice during those periods following vacations or any time children begin to spend greater amounts of time indoors (especially the winter months) and in close proximity to one another.

Early identification of lice and prompt treatment can successfully prevent the spread of lice to others. Early detection of head lice is imperative to controlling the spread and the treatment of the condition. It is very important for parents to check their child’s head for lice on a regular basis. Screening at home helps to preserve the learning environment and your family’s privacy. Your assistance with this matter will be much appreciated.
