Head Lice Awareness & Prevention
We have confirmed a case or cases of lice at ACA. Please be advised that while this is a normal occurrence in most schools, prompt action and vigilance must be taken by the school and parents to limit the spread of this highly contagious risk.
Please be advised of the following:
- Anyone can host lice as they feed on blood, hygiene has nothing to do with the spread of lice.
- Treating the spread of lice at the same time will more likely get rid of it quickly.
- If your child is identified as having lice, they must be off campus until they are free of lice.
