Head Lice

We have recently had cases of head lice in the school. To effectively deal with this, could all parents please check their daughter’s hair, especially around the nape of the neck and behind the ears. If nits (eggs) are found on the hair shafts, or adult live lice in the hair, please treat appropriately before your daughter returns to school. The link below is just one of many good sites for suggested detection and treatment methods.
