Prevention of head lice is as important as proper treatment. Please review the following guidelines to help prevent the spread of lice:
- Teach children not to share combs, brushes, hats, caps, scarves, or any other headgear.
- Clean or disinfect shared headgear (i.e. helmets) with rubbing alcohol before being used by others.
- Conduct regular head checks of your child.
Although a time consuming process, lice can be stopped with early treatment and attention.
After your child is treated, upon return to school, please accompany your child to the office. Your child’s hair will be examined and if live lice are discovered, your child will have to return home.
