Oh no! A louse in my house!
Head lice can cause concern and frustration for any parents. They are very common and have been around since the beginning of time. Any one of any age with hair is susceptible to head lice and has nothing to do with cleanliness. According to the Centers for Disease Control “Head lice can be a nuisance but have not been shown to spread disease.”
Parents may find it helpful to regularly check their child’s head for signs of infestation. As noted by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the chance of getting head lice in the classroom are minimal. It is helpful to remember that head lice do not hop or fly, they crawl. While head lice may be spread through contact with combs, hat, etc, this is much less likely to occur. Most cases of head lice occur through direct contact with the head of someone who is infested. In the school setting, students may be referred to the nurse for head checks if symptoms are evident, such as frequent scratching, visible bugs, etc.
Click here for more information on identification of head lice and helpful hints to combat infestation.
More information is available at the Centers for Disease Control website, www.cdc.gov, or may contact the City-Cowley County Health Department at 221-1430.
Feel free to contact your child’s school nurse.
