DISTRICT PROTOCOL REGARDING HEAD LICE
In the past, District 96 has followed a no-nit policy, but now doctors from the American Academy of Pediatrics (please read) no longer follow a no-nit policy, nor do they recommend sending a child home from school. When/if a student or adult reports a head condition/possible concern, the student is sent to the nurse. If a student is found to have live lice or nits while at school, the parent is notified by the nurse and evidence-based treatment options are discussed. Find more information on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.
