Lice Prevention

Head lice is a common problem that occurs in schools everywhere. Runnymede is fortunate to have a team of dedicated parent volunteers who arrange lice checks during the school year.  These checks are vital to contain the spread of lice and help reduce the number of cases.


Lice check success!

Thank You to all the parent volunteers who assisted with lice checks on Jan. 11th, 2017.

28 cases were identified which tells us that we need to continue regular screening of our children.


Runnymede is a stigma-free school.  Head lice is very common and is not caused by poor hygiene. Getting lice isn’t anyone’s fault.  Armed with the right tools and right information your family can easily become lice free.

Here is what you need to know and do if your child gets head lice.
