MEMO:  From the Health Office

Dear Parents:

With the new school year upon us, head lice can become a major problem for schools, children and their parents. This is a wonderful time to break the cycle of spread.  If every family would check their child and, if you find signs of infestation, treat. We should be able to start the school year free of cases.  Please check routinely throughout the school year.  

Pediculosis is an infestation of the body or clothing with the eggs, larvae, or adults of lice.  Head lice are usually located on the scalp.  They feed on human blood.  If they don’t get the chance to feed they die.

The recommended procedure for care is the use of a medicated shampoo. Treatment after seven to ten days is recommended to assure that no eggs have survived.  Nit combs are available to help remove nits from hair.  Dose and duration of shampoo treatment should be followed according to label instructions.  Follow-up combing for at least a week to remove any overlooked or new nits is of paramount importance in fighting and ridding the individual of any infestation. 

Clothing, bedclothes and linens should be laundered or dry-cleaned to rid them of the insect and destroy any eggs.  Any items that cannot be cleaned should be bagged for 15 days. The carpets and upholstered furniture should be vacuumed. Do not forget to clean the car!
Please remember that lice infestation is a nuisance issue.  Children should be told not to share hats, combs or hair clips. Please be a good neighbor and notify the Health Office and recent play dates that your child has lice.

Thank you for your help and cooperation in dealing with this issue.
