Always treat the whole family regardless of symptoms. Always.

Change bedding and damp dust and change all towels. No towel sharing, consider having individual hand towels for a few days. You'll be fine, everyone gets them at some point or several times.

Treat everyone and repeat in 2 weeks. Cut fingernails short and enforce frequent hand washing. Get him to wear pants in bed.
They are grim but an inevitable part of primary school. Our school does not notify parents if there are worms in the class, I assume some parents never treat their kids and it just goes round and round. School ought to deep clean, change sand etc but I doubt if they do.
We've (well DS but treated everyone) had them twice. flowers
