Head Lice   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

School employees shall report all suspected cases of head lice to the school nurse or designee as soon as possible. The nurse or designee shall examine the student and any siblings of affected students or members of the same household. If nits or lice are found, the student shall be notified and parents/guardians informed about recommended treatment procedures, ways to check the hair, and sources of further information.

Additional students may be examined for head lice by designated personnel, and information sent home to affected parents/guardians as warranted.

Students found with lice may return to school when they bring a note from the parent/guardian indicating the treatment used and when reexamination by the nurse or designee shows that all live pests and significant amounts of nits have been removed.
