Headlice

To keep headlice under control, remember… once a week, take a peek!

It is really important to check for lice weekly, even if you do not think your child has them. If you do find headlice, please treat immediately and notify a member of staff so that other parents can be made aware. If your child has long hair, tying it up might reduce their chances of catching them.
