Head Lice - What You Need to Know

Pediculosis (Head Lice)

Head lice is a universal problem and is particularly prevalent amoung elementary school-age children. Control of lice infestation is best handled by adequate treatment of the infested person and his/her immediate household and other close personal contacts. 
 
Communication from the school to paretns directly and through parent and classroom education to the studetns will help increase the awareness for both parents and child. Parents need to continually observe their child for this potential problem and treat adequately and appropriately as necessary. 
 
If a child in the District is found to have lice, the child's parent will be contacted to have the child treated and to pick him/her up immediately. After treatment and upon returning to school, the child will be examined by the school health staff or principal. The District practices a policy of "no live lice" as a criteria for return to school.
