Each year cases of pediculosis (head lice) are found throughout our schools. In an effort to reduce the numbers of cases found and decrease the inconvenience to families and students, we will be having a school-wide pediculosis check beginning on Friday, January 22nd, 2016.
Classes will be called down and students will sit in a private setting. The scalp area will be checked briefly by one of our volunteers, who will strictly adhere to our Board’s policy on confidentiality.
If live pediculosis (lice) are detected, families will be contacted and the student will need to be picked up from school to receive pediculosis treatment at home. Families of students with nits (eggs) will also be contacted and information on how to address pediculosis will be shared. In both cases, students will be asked to return a form to school indicating that a treatment for pediculosis has been completed.
Should you have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact the office.
