Head lice are making the rounds right now at most, if not all, schools. It can be transferred easily from child to child and spread quickly. To help limit the spread, please check your child’s scalp, neck and behind the ears under bright lighting on a routine basis. Lice are small insects, the size of a sesame seed, and light brown in color. Nits are the eggs that attach to hair shafts. If found, notify your school office and treat accordingly.
