Prevention of Head Lice
Make head checks for lice a regular part of your child's personal hygiene routine. Head lice is one of the most common problems faced by school-aged children and their families. Cases of head lice often increase following school breaks. While head lice control is primarily a parent responsibility, parents, the school and community all have a role to play. We strongly encourage you to speak to your children about proactive behavior to prevent the spread of head lice. This includes not sharing combs, hats, pillows and hair accessories and to avoid head to head contact. You child should know that teasing other students about head lice is unacceptable because just like the common cold, anyone can get head lice. Head lice does not jump from head to head and is not dangerous. Although head lice is not considered a health issue it can cause stress, anxiety and hardship for staff, students and parents. It is essential that each family does its part at home by undertaking regular screening and removal of lice and nits as part of routine personal hygiene. Please check out the following updated resources that include links to online videos on how to properly treat and screen for head lice. These resources are also available on the EIPS website and from our school office.
