Dear Parent/Guardian,


Head Lice


There is a reported case of head lice in school. We strongly recommend that you check your child’s hair immediately. As you may be aware head lice commonly occur amongst children at school, and it is only by regular inspection of hair that we can control the problem.

Course of Action

• You should check your child’s hair immediately.

• Should you discover head lice, then obtain a comb from your local chemist.

• Check all members of the family.

• Regular combing or brushing is the best safeguard against head lice.

• It is worthwhile checking your child’s hair once a week for lice (insects) and for nits (eggs)


Many Thanks,

Mr Williams
