NOTE FROM THE SCHOOL NURSE
There have been several positive cases of head lice. Please check your child for head lice as a precautionary measure. One of the most common signs of head lice is itching. Lice are transmitted through close contact with another infected person or through shared combs, hats, and other personal items. To learn more about Burlington Public Schools Head Lice Procedure, check out the webiste at www.burlington.mec.edu and click onto the Pupil Services link, then Health. Please call me at 781-270-1713, if you do find head lice on your child and/or if you have any questions. Also, please remind your child not to share Halloween costumes, especially masks and hats--prevention of head lice is the best approach to eliminating them.
