Nurse’s Notes: Recently, we have been seeing an increase in the number of children with head lice in our school. While head lice do not spread disease, they are a nuisance & we encourage parents to check their children regularly and treat promptly if discovered. Follow this advice from www.kidshealth.org: Seek Medical Care If Your Child: shows any signs of having lice, is constantly scratching or complains of itches that don't go away or has scratched the scalp to the point of redness, swelling, or visible pus. Think Prevention! You can help protect your kids from head lice by teaching them to: avoid head-to-head contact with other children, not share combs, brushes, hair ties, hats, etc., not lie on bedding, pillows, and carpets that have recently been used by someone with lice. No matter how long the problem lasts, be sure to remind your child that although having lice can certainly feel embarrassing, but anyone can get them. It's important for kids to understand that they haven't done anything wrong and that having lice doesn't make them dirty. Reassure them that as frustrating as getting rid of the lice can be, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Please see Mrs. Hoffmann for more information.
