Head Lice

Head lice infestation is a difficult and time-consuming problem. All lice and nits must be removed before the student can re-enter school. Further treatment of all infested family members, carpet, bedding, draperies, car seat, and stuffed animals is required to prevent a reoccurrence of the problem. Contact your school nurse if you need information regarding head lice treatment. It is acknowledged that head lice infestation can create serious family issues. However, all action needed to deal with the situation and to prevent re-infestation simply must be done. Absences due to head lice will be considered excused only on the day the student is sent home and the following day. Further absences are considered to be unexcused. A parent must accompany the child back to school to be cleared by the nurse, so the child can return to class.
