Dear Parent/ Guardian,
In partnership with The Lice Crew, German Mills Public School started today with our yearly professional head lice screening services to minimize the risk of head lice in our classrooms. A professionally trained technician conducts checks on each child who ‘opted in’ in the school.
These students are screened using individual screening sticks and are examined using professional magnification equipment in a discreet and friendly manner. School wide screenings are an effective way to minimize the risk of head lice at the school and working together with families who can provide on-going checks at home will keep the cases to a minimum throughout the year.
The classes where lice has been found will receive a letter with instructions and information, so look for that this evening. If you have any questions or require additional information, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
It is important to note that only 50% of people show symptoms of head lice, such as scratching, so it is possible to be infected and not be aware. If you did not ‘opt in’ and would like to for the next check, please visit Cash Online.
Working together with schools and communities, The Lice Crew is committed to making the lice removal process educational, safe, stress-free and fun. If you have any questions, or would like to learn more about The Lice Crew’s professional services, please contact a member of the crew at: 416-781-4545 (Toronto) or visit us online at www.licecrew.com.
