Head Lice Information

HEAD LICE INFORMATION

Reminder for Parents

Although head lice may not be the most exciting topic to chat about, they certainly are a nuisance, and a number of parents have asked for more information about head lice.

As per Alberta Health Services direction, we do NOT send out notices about occurrences of head lice in the school, but we do encourage parents to check their children for lice on a somewhat regular basis throughout the year.

We do not send the notes home any longer saying that head lice are in a class or the school.  At school we do try to take precautions to reduce the likelihood of transmission of head lice, but unfortunately cannot ensure that it does not happen.
