In the last several years, there has been an increase in the number of cases of pediculosis (head lice) found in Alameda County. Many of the schools in Fremont have had scattered cases.
Children with head lice will be sent home from school as soon as possible to start treatment. Parents will be contacted when head lice are found and instructions for treatment will be given to the parents. Students may return to school upon satisfactory treatment and after there are no visible lice upon re-examination.
For information on detecting and treating lice, please check the flyers.
