Head Lice

Head lice (pediculosis) infestation is common in the United States among children 3 – 12 years of age. Head lice are not a health hazard and are not responsible for the spread of any disease. The most common symptom of lice infestation is itching. If  you notice your child scratching his or her head often, especially behind the ears or at the nape of the neck, check for lice. Also, do frequent checks when you know of a lice outbreak in your child’s school.

 Please see the instructions for treatment of head lice. You may also refer to

the Classroom Lice Notifications that are sent home with your child for treatment instructions during a lice outbreak in school.

 Please visit the following websites for additional information regarding treatment of head lice infestation.
