With colder weather fast approaching and everyone back in school, we are likely to see the return of head lice.

Some helpful tips to avoid head lice include:

  • Check hair 1-2 times a week during the school year
  • Avoid head to head contact
  • Do not share personal items and head gear like combs, hats, and scarves
  • Tie back long hair or braid hair to avoid hair to hair contact
