Head Lice

Head lice and nits commonly occur in students of this age. While NES staff will be vigilant in watching for new cases, please do your part to prevent the spread of this communicable condition by checking your child(ren) daily for the next few weeks and on a regular basis thereafter.

Coordinating efforts between school and home significantly reduces the frequency of lice and nit occurrences and we thank you in advance for your attention to this matter.

Please review the information from Nova Scotia Public Health regarding the prevention and treatment of head lice and contact me at the email or phone number below if you have any additional questions or concerns.
