Good morning Tuart Hill community

We have had numerous cases of head lice reported across the school.

Please check your child’s hair tonight and commence treatment for at least ten days if you find any nits or lice. The Department of Health recommends families use one of the following effective treatments:

·         the 10 day hair conditioner treatment; or

·         insecticide treatments.

Under the School Education Act 1999, if your child has head lice, the Principal may ask you keep your child away from school until treatment has started. Your child may return to school when all live head lice have been removed.

More information can be found on the included attachment.

Thanks in advance,
Joe Bell
Associate Principal
