Headlice Information

Dear Parents/Guardians/Students

We request that all students check their hair for headlice, in particular junior students. This year there is a recurrent problem of headlice. To eliminate this problem we need everyone’s co-operation. Some parents are annoyed and understandably so, that there are students with headlice who are not taking the necessary precautions and getting treatment. This is very frustrating.

Below is letter with information received from the HSE about headlice and what treatment is required. They recommend two - three treatments to get rid of the headlice. I appreciate that this is expensive but it is necessary.
