Information Regarding Head Lice

Head lice are a common problem and can happen at home, play, or school. Anyone can get head lice fairly easily. Head lice are mainly spread through direct head to head contact, but also from sharing hats, brushes, headphones, helmets, combs, hair accessories and other personal items. Research shows that mass screening for head lice is not effective for managing head lice. Eastern Health’s HI Website (hi.easternhealth.ca) contains helpful information on head lice (pediculosis).

Parents and guardians have the responsibility to take an active role in the prevention of head lice outbreaks by:

  • checking your child’s head  weekly for lice or nits
  • talking to your child about not sharing hats, brushes, headphones, helmets, combs, hair accessories or other personal items
  • tying back long hair 

When head lice are found, parents and guardians have the responsibility to take an active role in the management of head lice by:

  • treating head lice 
  • informing your child’s school
  • Children sometimes get lice because they play closely together. Parents or guardians may feel frustrated or embarrassed; however, the problem has nothing to do with standards of cleanliness. 

If you have any questions, please refer to Eastern Health’s HI Website for information or contact the school Public Health Nurse for advice on what to look for and information on effective treatment for your family.  

Thank you for your cooperation.

Textbooks! Textbooks! Textbooks!

We are really short on textbooks this year. Unfortunately we did not get back all of our textbooks from last year which has resulted in a shortage for this year’s students. If you have a textbook at home, we ask you kindly to please return it to the school so we can have them for this year’s classes. Thanks in advance for your cooperation!
