PROCEDURES FOR DEALING WITH HEAD LICE
When/if a student or adult reports a head condition/possible concern, the student is sent to the nurse. The nurse will check the student privately. If lice or nits are present, the nurse will contact the parents. If the student has siblings, the nurse will contact the parents to have the siblings checked, as well.
Students will be permitted to return to school after having treatment/being checked at home.
The school maintains a “no live lice” policy, which means that a child will not be allowed to return to school if there are any live lice present in his or her hair. The child MUST be checked by the school nurse before admission will be allowed.
The building administrator will send notification to the classroom families via the District's parent notification system the day a student is identified with having lice.
