Head lice letter


September 2023


Dear Parent/Carer 


We are writing to inform you that there has recently been a case of head lice identified in school. While lice are nothing more than a nuisance, it is important that children are checked on a weekly basis so that any head lice can be dealt with quickly and before they can be allowed to spread. 


We would ask you to check your child’s head as soon as possible. Please follow the simple routine below to ensure that you are doing all you can to keep head lice outbreaks to a minimum. 






For further information on head lice please see your pharmacist or visit www.nhs.uk/conditions/head-lice.


Yours sincerely
