‘Once a Week Take a Peek’ Head Lice Campaign

The school is launching a new anti-head lice campaign called ‘Once a Week, Take a Peek’. This emphasises the importance of everyone checking the family’s hair for head lice and provides information about getting rid of lice if they are found. Every Wednesday will be ‘Take a Peek’ day. We will send a text out to remind all parents that this is our dedicated night to fight the louse! Together we can do it!

If you should find head lice in your child’s hair it is essential that you let the office know. Please do not be embarrassed about this as head lice 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 head lice (no names will be disclosed) via Teachers 2 Parents. The text will also provide a link to the ‘Once a Week, Take a Peek’ website where you can find advice on how to check for them and the different methods of treating them, if they are discovered.

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 information we provide and get into the routine of taking a peek every week!
