Clinic News

What you should know about head lice.

The head louse is a parasitic insect that is found on the scalp, near the nape of the neck and the area behind the ears. they do not have wings and cannot fly or jump, but they can crawl very quickly. They receive their nourishment by sucking blood from the scalp. They cannot survive on pets and must have human blood to survive. They can live for around a month; however, lice cannot survive for more than 24 hours off the human host. Head lice can be acquired by close contact with an infected person, and from sharing items such as coats, hats and brushes. Head lice is NOT a sign of poor hygiene and can affect people of any social or economic class.

When your child comes to the clinic complaining of an itchy head or has a rash on the neck or behind the ears, lice is something that will be checked. If live bugs are found, you will be called to pick up your child from school. We will tell you the proper procedures for eliminating them. It is essential that you follow through with all of the steps at home, and then check your child daily for 2 weeks. If you discover your child has lice at home, please call the clinic and let Ms.Samples know. Please do not send your child to school if you find live bugs. You will need to treat at home, and then repeat the process in 7 days. If the first treatment does not take care of the lice, please see your doctor who can prescribe a stronger shampoo. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call.

Safety Reminder

Please remember that all visitors to the school must enter through the front doors and sign in. Each visitor should wear the yellow name tag at all times while on school grounds.

Teachers and staff are engaged with children from 7:45 a.m. until 3:15 p.m. Please help us preserve that time. We ask that if you need to speak with a staff member, you set up a time with that person.
