Head Lice

A case of head lice has been reported within our primary school community today. It is important to regularly check your child's head for lice and then treat if necessary.

  • Head lice are spread mainly through direct head-to-head contact but may also be spread by sharing hats, combs and other hair accessories.  
  • Anyone can get head lice. 
  • Please refer to the head lice prevention and treatment fact sheet for information on head lice, how to check, treatment and prevention.  
  • Head lice are much easier to treat if caught early.  
  • To prevent the spread of head lice, you should check your child(ren) daily over the next three weeks and regularly after that. 

Please inform the school or preschool if your child presents with head lice and make sure they are treated before returning.
