Head lice advice for parents/guardians

14 September 2020

To all parents/carers,

We have been notified of a case of head lice in school. Head lice are very common in young children. May we remind you of the importance of regular screening of your child’s hair to prevent the spread of head lice. 

You can receive advice about head lice treatment from your local pharmacist.  It is helpful if long hair is tied back or secured in a way which prevents hair to hair contact with another child.

Yours faithfully,

Mrs Taylor
