Tuesday, November 15, 2016Head lice (pediculosis):
Head lice are occasionally found in school. Should this occur, students may be examined to determine if lice or nits are present on student(s). In order to attend school, students must be free from head lice. If a student is identified as having head lice, the parent or guardian will be contacted. The student will not be allowed to return to school until: a) the parent or guardian submits a written form from a health professional which states that the student is free from head lice; and/or b) the District’s designated official or health professional verifies that the student is free of head lice. Should head lice be identified by students in two families, all parents may be notified through a written note to the home.
