• Nurse’s Notes:  The bane of many parents, the head louse is a tiny, wingless parasitic insect that lives among human hairs and feeds on extremely small amounts of blood drawn from the scalp. Although they may sound gross, lice (the plural of louse) are a very common problem, especially for kids ages 3 years to 12 years (girls more often than boys). Actually, a case of head lice has already been reported in our school this year so we need to be aware and take action to prevent this from becoming a problem for our school. Lice aren't dangerous and they don't spread disease, but they are contagious and can just be downright annoying. Their bites may cause a child's scalp to become itchy and inflamed, and persistent scratching may lead to skin irritation. It's wise to treat head lice quickly once the diagnosis is made because they can spread from person to person. Though petroleum jelly, mayonnaise, and olive oil are sometimes used in an attempt to suffocate head lice, these treatments and many others have not been proven to be effective. We recommend your check your child’s head regularly and consult your child’s doctor for treatment should find anything of concern. In addition, please feel free to contact Mrs. Hoffmann, should you have questions or want more information.
