Although events like these are rare, we recognize the impact they can have on each of us—our children, staff, families and friends. Individuals react to situations like this in various ways. We may feel sadness, grief, helplessness, anxiety and anger. Whatever you feel is okay.

What you need to know about head lice

What you need to know about head lice

What is head lice?

Head lice are tiny insects that live on the scalp where they lay their eggs. They have three stages: the egg (nit), the nymph and the adult. Head lice do not spread diseases and cannot be spread between animals or pets and humans, only through direct contact between people.

Head lice spread easily, especially where people are in close contact. They are very common among school-aged children or children attending child care, where they spread through direct hair-to-hair contact or directly by sharing things like hats, combs, hairbrushes or headphones.

One of the first signs of head lice is an itchy scalp. However, children can have head lice for several weeks with no symptoms. If you think your child has head lice, check their hair for nits right away, then again after one week and after two weeks.

What to do if your child has lice

Parents are advised to keep their child at home until they have been treated for lice. Students may only return to school if they are "nit-free." If your child has live lice, ensure that they avoid head-to-head contact with other children until the lice are gone. Children should not share combs, hairbrushes, caps, hats or hair ornaments. You should also check all family members for head lice. Be sensitive to your child's feelings and let them know that having head lice does not mean they are not clean.

Head lice can be treated with the following approved insecticides:

  • pyrethrin (found in R&C Shampoo + Conditioner)
  • permethrin (Nix Creme Rinse or Kwellada-P Creme Rinse)
  • lindane (Hexit Shampoo or PMS-Lindane Shampoo).
Healthy Body!  Healthy Mind!

Healthy Body! Healthy Mind!

 

When we invest in our physical health, will be able to combat stress and anxiety with greater success.  This includes being:

  • Well-rested
  • Well-nourished
  • Well-exercised

Some Tips:

Set a Sleep Schedule – Set an alarm to go to bed! Our body likes a regular schedule. Bedtimes and wake times should not vary by more than one hour from one day to the next.

Drink plenty of water - Many of us go through life dehydrated—causing tiredness, low energy, and headaches. It's common to mistake thirst for hunger, so staying well hydrated will also help us make healthier food choices.

More steps – Step side to side. Start by doing it 10 times per foot. Do this while watching TV, working on your computer or brushing your teeth. Do it with your children to make it fun.

At (insert name of school), we welcome and encourage the participation of parents and community members, and are grateful for the countless hours our volunteers contribute throughout the school year.

Once you have completed the process, you are on file with the Peel District School Board as being a school volunteer.  All returning volunteers will receive an Offence Declaration form that must be filled out and returned to the board office each year. Completing the Offence Declaration will ensure that you can continue volunteering in the next school year.  Expect to receive the form in mid-February.
