Administrative Guidelines


Whenever a student is found to be infested with head lice, s/he is to be sent home for treatment.

The student may not be readmitted to school until the parent completes Form 8450A F3 and it is confirmed that the child is free of any nits.

The student may be readmitted to school the following day, but will be subject to examination by appropriate school personnel until no live lice and no nits within one quarter inch of the scalp are found.

The necessary at home treatment for lice is contained in Form 8450A F1. Form 8450A F1 and the cover letter (Form 8450A F2) shall be provided to the parents/legal guardians of the student.

The other students in the infested student's classroom and the student's sibling(s) should be examined for evidence of either the lice or lice eggs (nits). The examinations should be done by the school secretary.
