Please inform your child's teacher immediately if such a case has occurred and also provide the relevant evidence.

My child has lice. What do I have to do?

If you notice a lice infestation in your child, you must inform us immediately. In addition, your child may not return to school until he or she is lice and nit free. If we find lice on your child, we will call you immediately and send your child home. If you are not available, we will sit your child separately from the others for as long as it takes to prevent further spread. If lice appear, all children and the parents in the class and if necessary also in the OGS will be informed with the "lice note".
