Head lice is a NUISANCE,
but NOT A HEALTH PROBLEM
On this page you will find some links to information that will help you identify and get rid of head lice at home. Please do not panic if you find that someone in your family has contracted head lice. This is NOT an indication that your child or your home is unclean! As a matter of fact, Mr. Brown's own children have had head lice more than once!
It is VERY important that if you find that someone in your family has head lice that you CALL THE SCHOOL. No one wants to have to deal with this problem more than once - we will make sure that all parents are made aware that they need to check their child's hair and take the necessary steps.
