Head Lice
We continue to have a few problems with head lice. It is
essential to check your child’s hair regularly and if they
have been affected, one treatment will not solve the
problem. It will be necessary to repeat the treatment as
prescribed to ensure that all eggs are destroyed. Please
follow the instructions on the leaflet sent home this week.
Failure to do so will result in a recurrence of the problem.
