LUNCHES BY LIBELLE – IN SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAMME:
We have had some cases of School Sores at our School.
- School sores (impetigo) are skin infections common in school children and spread easily. They are caused by bacteria that can cause an infection.
- School sores can happen even when you keep your child’s skin clean. It is not a sign of poor parenting. School sores can happen on healthy skin but often happen when the skin has already been damaged by a scratch, bite or condition such as eczema or chickenpox.
The sores can be anywhere on the body, but most often appear on exposed areas such as the face (near the mouth and nose), or on the hands, arms or legs.
- School sores may start as a blister or a group of blisters
- The blister bursts leaving a patch of red, wet skin which weeps or oozes
- The spot usually becomes coated with a tan or yellowish crust, making it look like it has been covered with honey – it grows larger day by day
- There can be small spots around the first spots, spreading outwards
- School sores can be itchy
Spreading to others:
Infection can also easily spread to others by:
- Direct skin contact
- Contact with infected clothing, towels, sponges or face-cloths
- Touching objects which a child with school sores has also touched (such as toys)
- School sores spread easily while they are weeping or oozing
How can I reduce the spread of school sores?
- Keep your child home until one day after the start of treatment
- Make sure the dressings completely cover their sores
- Your child should avoid swimming until all the sores have healed
- Wash your child’s clothes, towels and bed linen separately from the rest of the family. Wash them in hot water and dry in the sunshine or a hot tumble dryer. You can wash toys in a mild disinfectant
The following may also reduce the risk of school sores:
- Take a daily bath or shower with soap and water
- Practise good hand hygiene – wash hands with soap regularly
- Dispose of all used tissues / dressings in a rubbish bin with a lid
- Cut your child’s fingernails short and keep them clean
- Thoroughly wash grazes or cuts – if your child is scratching a sore, cover it with a dressing
If children present to school with untreated, uncovered school sores:
- Parents will be contacted to pick up their children from school
- They will be required to seek medical treatment and remain home until one day after the start of treatment
- All sores must be bandaged upon return to school
See above advice of ‘How can I reduce the spread of school sores?’

HEADS UP – LICE!:
- A head louse can survive up to 4 weeks on a person’s head and lay 10 eggs a day!
- Lice can multiply fast so it’s a good idea to treat head lice quickly.
- Lice can be hard to get rid of.
- Lice are insects, so the treatments for lice are basically insecticides or pesticides.
- Medicated lice treatments usually kill the lice and nits, but it may take a few days for the itching to stop.
- An Alternative to chemical treatments: you can try wet combing – using a fine-tooth comb on wet hair to remove nits and lice.
- Kids Can has provided the school with nit combs and nit shampoo. If you would like some, please ask at the School Office.
