Head Lice

It has come to our attention that head lice are still rampant in the school. Despite previous notes, messages, talks and SPHE lesson, some children are still coming to school spreading head lice to everyone.

Treatments are expensive and families do not needthis extra financial burden every couple of weeks. Please check your child’s head, and other family member’s head meticulously for a number of nights, to ensure they are not infested.

Please see more information on:

We hope that you will work with us to ensure that our school is head lice free.
