Dear Parents,

Since head lice are a common reoccurring problem every year. We kindly ask you to screen your children regularly. Head lice can spread rapidly if left unchecked. By early detection, we may limit its spread.

Head lice should be suspected when there is intense itching and scratching of the scalp and the back of the neck.  Head lice are common and not indicative of poor hygiene.

In case lice are detected, the child needs to start the needed treatment and stay at home until the scalp is completely lice free.

Kindly note that according to the student’s handbook, student’s hair must be trim, clean and neatly groomed. Girls are expected to tie their long hair and boys to have short hair. 

Thank you for your cooperation.
