National Bug Busting Day

15th June is National Bug Busting Day

Head lice are a common problem, particularly in school children aged 4-11.
They are largely harmless, but can live in the hair for a long time if not treated and can be irritating and frustrating to deal with. Head lice can be difficult to spot, even when the head is closely inspected. The only way to be sure someone has head lice is to find a live louse by combing their hair with a special fine-toothed comb. This is called detection combing.
 
15th June is National Bug Busting Day. As a school we are asking all parents/carers to help prevent lice from circulating from head to head and back again by synchronizing head lice checks for the whole family on this day.
 
Attached you will find an information sheet regarding head lice. Additional information can be found on http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Head-lice/Pages/Introduction.aspx
 
Taking part on "Bug Busting" days can help prevent lice circulating, i.e. if all cases are identified and treated successfully at the same time there will be fewer opportunities for lice to circulate amongst children and their families.
 
If you do find any head lice in your child's hair, please advise the school office (in strictest confidence) so that class members can be advised to be extra vigilant. There is no need for a child to be absent from school if they have head  lice and have been treated.
