What immunizations does my child need to start school?
When should I keep my child home from school?
What if my child has a peanut/tree nut allergy?
What if my child has head lice?
If a student is found to have live head lice, their parent/guardian will be contacted to pick them up for treatment. The student may return to school after treatment has been completed. Upon returning to school, the child will be re-checked for live lice.
If live lice are found, the child will be re-checked every school day until no more live lice are found. If nits are found, the child will be re-checked weekly until the nits are gone. If the child has siblings in the district, they will also be checked.
If live lice are a continued problem, the Department of Social Services may be contacted.
It is not necessary to do classroom head checks. Other students who are in close proximity to a child with live lice, close friends, or coats/items that belong to that child will be checked. If another student is identified as having live lice, the entire class will be checked at that time.
