We have cases of lice in our school community. Lice are small insects or bugs that live on the human body. The eggs of lice are called nits. Nits attach to hair strands. Nits can remain viable on clothing for about 1 month. Head lice can survive for about a week off of their human host. Lice are transmitted from person to person with close contact or by sharing personal items. Lice may crawl from host to host, but they do not hop, jump, or fly.
The Iowa Department of Public Health suggests that weekly screenings at home provide the opportunity for prompt recognition and treatment of head lice. Students should not be excluded from school because of lice.Feel free to contact Kathy Campbell with questions or concerns regarding this matter. You may reach Kathy by email at email@example.com
