Head Lice

Each year, approximately 6-12 million students between the ages of three to 12 years of age contract head lice, and like many school districts, we have occasional students who are affected each year.  Please discuss with your child the importance of not sharing personal items.  Additionally, we recommend that you check your child’s head weekly as a part of their regular hygiene routine.  Additional information may be found at the links below:
