Once a week take a peek headlice campaign
The school is launching a new anti headlice campaign called "Once a Week Take a Peek". This emphasises the importance of everyone checking the family's hair for headlice every week and provides information about getting rid of lice if they are found.
Further information can be found at this website www.onceaweektakeapeek.com
All children will bring home a leaflet advising parents about headlice, how to check for them and the different methods of treating them, if they are discovered. Please keep these leaflets safe for future reference as we do not plan to send these out again routinely.
If you should find headlice in your child's hair it is essential that you let the school office know. Please do not be embarrassed about this as headlice are a normal part of life and not something to be worried, panicked or ashamed about. The school will inform other parents of the class that there has been a case of headlice (no names will be disclosed) by Parent Mail, rather than sending out more leaflets. The email will provide a link to the Once a Week Take a Peek website where you can download futher copies of the leaflet if you wish.
It would be wonderful if we could make this campaign a success and get rid of the nuisance of headlice, so please take the time to read the leaflet and get into the routine of taking a peek every week!
