Head Lice

Parents are encouraged to check their childrens' hair for lice regularly

Careful parental checks are the best preventative. It is important to check your child 's head before and after sleepovers as head lice are most readily transmitted by direct head-to-head contact where children share sleeping quarters. Please contact the School Nurse in your child 's school with any questions or concerns.
