Head Lice Policy

Head lice are frustrating, a nuisance and very communicable. When every parent takes responsibility to check their child/children’s heads and screen the entire family, lice can be detected early and controlled. Children should not share coats, hats, scarves or brushes with other children. If head lice do occur, please contact the school immediately.

If a child is suspected to have head lice an initial screening will be performed by staff. If head lice are found students will be sent home. Education will be provided for home treatment options performed by parent/guardian. Upon returning the student will be screened and again after 11 days
