Head lice

PublishingPageContent
In recent years the incidence of head lice in Queensland has reached epidemic proportions. Head lice are transmitted through head-to-head contact only and are certainly not related to personal hygiene!
The incidence of head lice can be contained provided every parent accepts the responsibility for checking and treating their children. It is no disgrace to contract head lice but it is unwise to neglect proper treatment.
Any incidents of head lice should be reported to your child’s teacher. Following this, a note will be forwarded home to all class students alerting parents and caregivers that there has been a reported case of head lice in your child’s class. The school can provide information on effective treatment. A strong appeal is made for the co-operation of all parents to contain the spread of head lice.
