It is important to regularly check your child’s head for signs of lice. Becoming infected with head lice is a common condition and has nothing to do with cleanliness. While head lice are not considered to be a health hazard or contagious disease, they are easily spread by head-to-head contact and are very annoying.

Since this condition spreads easily, please check your child’s hair regularly for signs of lice and/or nits. The attached fact sheet from Alberta Health Services, provides instructions for checking and treating your child’s hair.

If you identify that your child has lice, it is important that treatment be given immediately. Please inform the school and other people your child has had close contact with (family members, friends, teammates, child care...) so other families can be notified to check their children more closely. All reports to the school are handled confidentially.

Your support in helping us to address this issue will assist in controlling the spread to others. If you have any questions, please contact the school principal.
