Health Information Topic: Head Lice

Head lice are tiny bugs the size of sesame seeds which attach to the hair. They are most common in preschool and elementary school children. They are crawling insects and cannot jump or fly. They may be spread through head to head contact, common in the Waverly age group. Regular head checks of your child are the most valuable way to spot head lice before they multiply or infest. Remember to be discreet if found, to avoid anxiety for the child. We encourage you to speak with your healthcare provider for guidance on treatment and reach out to Nurse Kristy for support.
