When a student enrols at a school, parents/guardians/carers and the school will be requested to sign a standard agreement that outlines responsibilities and expectations.
Attached to this agreement, should be the Department of Health (DH) Treating and Controlling Head Lice pamphlet. A copy of this pamphlet was provided to schools in the DH "Scratching for Answers" head lice information kit. This pamphlet can be downloaded from the DH web site Head Lice in PDF format, translated into 20 languages.
Please use the pro forma Head Lice Management Agreement (Word - 29Kb) (doc - 48kb).
This agreement has been translated into 21 languages.
