Head Lice

Head Lice are tiny insects about the size of a seasme seed. They move from one person to another by head to head contact. They cannot jump to another person's head.

Children who get head lice may feel embarrassed or ashamed, but they shouldnot. Anyone can get head lice. It has nothing to do with feeling dirty or clean, and lice do not spread disease or illness. Be sensitive to your child's feelings.
