We would like to bring to your attention that there have been recurrent cases of head lice in both the Primary and Pre-School classes. In order to reduce the risk of reoccurrence, we ask that you check your children for head lice regularly, and refrain from sending them to school, if head lice are present, until treated and lice free. Please inform the First Aid Office in case of head lice: Firstaid@gess.sg.
Head lice is a common problem with Pre-School and schoolgoing children as it is easily transmitted through close contact with someone who already has head lice, or even their contaminated clothing and other belongings. Head lice infection has nothing to do with personal hygiene. ANYONE can be infested with head lice.
