Dear Parent/ Guardian,

 In partnership with The Lice Crew, Brownridge Public School will be offering professional head lice screening services to minimize the risk of head lice in our classrooms.  A visit has been booked for Friday, September 30, 2016. A professionally trained technician will conduct checks on each child in the school.

 Each student will be screened using individual screening sticks and will be 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.

 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.

 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.
