How to detect head lice!

Within most schools at any one time, there will be a small number of children infected with head lice. 

This is often between 0% and 5%, rarely more. Schools generally do not have a serious ‘outbreak’ with many children infected. 
 

Infection levels remain fairly constant, so we need your help to combat the bugs!

 
If there is a case detected by school, parents/carers will receive a general communication text or email to request you to "take a peek" and to continue taking a peek once a week, to keep these pesky bugs at bay. 
 
If you detect head lice in your child's hair/head, we would also ask you to contact school and advise us so we can get the general communication out to the whole school community so everyone is taking a peek and checking too. 
 
Thank you
