Head Lice

Unfortunately, head lice can be a real issue in a school environment. Head lice are transmitted from one person's hair to another's either through direct contact or through sharing combs, brushes, hats, furniture, etc....

Children found to have live head lice and/or nits will be sent home with instructions for treatment. Parents may speak with Joy Hay if they have questions regarding treatment. A student may return to school following treatment and after all nits have been removed. 

Students must be checked and cleared before they may return to class.

There is a shampoo that repels lice. Check with your local pharmacy.
