Head Lice ProcedureWhen a case of lice is discovered in kindergarten and elementary school, the student is excluded and all students in that class and any siblings of the infested student are checked. Letters are sent home to alert parents of the infestation. In secondary schools, the student is excluded; and all siblings and contacts of the infested student are checked.To be readmitted to school, a parent/guardian must bring the student who has been treated to the Health Office for examination. The student must be nit free for re-admittance to school. If the student is not nit free, the student will continue to be excluded and must return home with the parent/guardian for complete removal of nits.Please follow the absentee guidelines for your school.
