5062 - Lice and Nits



Lice and Nits





        Students found to have live head lice or louse eggs will not be permitted at school and will be sent home.  Upon discovering the presence of any indication of lice or louse eggs, the student’s parent(s) or guardian(s) will be notified, and if appropriate will be asked to pick up the student from school immediately.


        Students will not be permitted to return to school until the district finds that no live lice or louse eggs can be detected.  The parent(s) or guardian(s) will be required to treat the student and accompany the student to school to be examined.


        The student cannot ride the school bus until the district has cleared the student to return to school.
