Please be aware that lice is ever present in school buildings. Please take the time to check your child’s hair once a week and take care of anything that is found.

To prevent infestation try some of these suggestions.

· Keep boys hair short clean cut

· Keep girls hair pulled up and spray with hair spray.

· Instruct your children to: not share hairbrushes, hats, or hug on friends.

· Lice cannot jump they only crawl. They are quick and spread quickly.
