Notes from the Nurse Flynn/Health Alerts
We need to work as a community to prevent lice in our classrooms. Lice is not associated with any health issues, but it is a nuisance, and prevention is possible. As you send your child, please consider the following. (1) Remind children not to share any personal items that touch the head. (2) Pull shoulder length (or longer) hair back whenever possible. (3) Immediately share information with the school nurse if you find lice – it is nothing to be ashamed of, but it is highly contagious. And most importantly: (4) Consider weekly comb-outs on your child(ren) -- A 2-minute comb-out once a week, with a metal toothed comb, may reduce your child’s risk. Comb-outs make sense regardless of whether you see lice. They are generally preventive, as they can eliminate a stray nit or two before you even see them.
