Lice Information

Whenever a student returns from a long break from school, or when a new case of head lice is detected at school, it is a good opportunity to educate families on the benefit of making periodic head checks in the home, a part of your school aged child’s healthy routines.

Ideally, students should be screened for head lice at home prior to returning to school following a school vacation, such as after summer, winter, or spring break. This is the most common time (during vacation from school), that children develop an infestation.
