Nurse's Notes: Lice Outbreak




Dear ISD Community,


Please be informed that we have several cases of head lice that have recently been reported to the school, both in the elementary and secondary schools.  Please check your children at home for head lice!  It works best if you make it a part of your routine, for example once a week at bath or shower time.  And know that the school also takes special precautions when we get a reported case of head lice.  Lice are not a sign of poor hygiene nor are they carriers of illness, but they surely are a nuisance!  So let’s keep them “in check” by checking together.


Cheers to your Health,


Nurse Jen
