Regular head lice checks are carried out at school and if lice and/or nits (eggs) are found in your child’s hair, appropriate treatment is to be started immediately by the parents. After treatment has commenced, your child may return to school the following day where he/she will be re-checked before returning to class.
The school will not accept responsibility for lost or damaged personal items belonging to students. All articles of clothing should be clearly labelled so that they can be returned to the owner if found.
