8450A - PEDICULOSIS (HEAD LICE)

Whenever a student is found to be infested with head lice, s/he is to be sent home for treatment and not readmitted until the parent completes Form 8450A F3 and it is confirmed that the child is free of any nits.

The necessary treatment is contained in Form 8450A F1 which is to be sent to the parent along with the cover letter (Form 8450A F2).

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 authorized personnel.
