Head Lice

A number of cases of head lice have been reported within our school community.

Head lice are spread mostly by direct head to head contact but may also be spread by sharing of hats, combs and other hair accessories.

Anyone can get head lice.

Please refer to the attached SA Health fact sheet on head lice prevention and treatment for information on head lice, how to check, treatment and prevention.

To prevent the spread of head lice it is recommended you check your child(ren) daily over the next few weeks and on a regular basis thereafter.

Head lice is much easier to treat if caught early.

Please inform the school if your child presents with head lice and ensure they are treated before returning.
