Control of head lice depends on prompt diagnosis and effective treatment.   We encourage parents to check their child’s hair at least weekly throughout the school year for the presence of head lice.  Please let us know immediately if you find any lice so that we can notify the whole class and ask all parents of children in the same class to treat their children at the same time.  Remember the entire family should be treated for head lice as well in order to stop them re-occurring.
