Childhood Illnesses

Dear Parents
The school nurse recommends that we remind everyone about the need to check all children's hair for headlice on a regular weekly basis to avoid the spread of this little pest.  The recommended product is  'Hedrin' silicone based non-chemical treatment which needs to be repeated after 7 days to break the breeding cycle of the lice and to be left on for 6-8 hours or overnight.  They also stress that the whole family needs to be treated.
