Head lice have been reported on students across several year groups in Junior School. As a precaution, please check your child's hair this evening.

If you do find head lice, the child must be kept at home until the lice and eggs are treated. Should it be necessary, anti-lice shampoos are available at pharmacies and supermarkets. Treatment is simple and effective. Please continue to check the hair weekly and treat as indicated.

If you are having difficulty eradicating the outbreak with the over the counter products or conditioner please visit your GP.
