Take a Peek Once A Week
Lice Happen. Anyone can get lice. It’s not a sign of poor hygiene or lack of cleanliness. But it does take persistent and diligent treatment to stop the cycle and reoccurrence of lice. Parents are encouraged to check their children’s hair weekly.
Please see the attached fact sheet from the Spokane Regional Health District. It Provides excellent information and the 6 steps to follow for getting rid of lice. If you would like further information or need assistance with identification and treatment, please call or see our school nurse, Krissy Kirby, RN at 678-2471.
