Kaya parents and carers,

We have had a number of reports of head lice across the school, from Kindergarten through to Year 6.  We know that head lice spread quickly – please check your child’s hair tonight and if lice are found, follow the information attached for treatment.

Under the School Education Act 1999, if your child has head lice, the principal may keep him or her away from school until treatment has started. Your child may return to school when all live head lice have been removed. There is no need to stay away from school if there are only a few remaining eggs, but you must continue treatment over the following 10 days to ensure that all eggs and hatchlings have been removed.

Kind regards

Joe Bell
Associate Principal
