Dear Parents / Caregivers,
A case of head lice has been detected in your child’s class. Anyone can get head lice…mainly through direct head-to-head contact but also from sharing hats, brushes and other personal items. Head lice are a problem in many communities, and do not reflect poor hygiene or social status.
Please do your part to prevent the spread of this communicable condition by checking your child(ren) daily for the next few weeks, and on a regular basis thereafter. Lice infestation is much easier to treat if caught early.
If you should discover a case of head lice, please treat your child(ren) and notifiy the parent of your child’s playmates. This is the best way to protect your family and community.
Thank you for your cooperation.
