Our procedures require if a child is identified as having live head lice, the child must be treated at home and must be accompanied to the school clinic the next day with the parent to check for live head lice.
In order for the child to be readmitted to school following a live head lice infestation, he/she must be checked, have no live lice, and have a statement signed by the parent/guardian that treatment was completed. If no nits are found, further rechecking will not be done. If nits are found, the student will be readmitted and rechecked in 8-10 days. If live lice are found, the student will not be readmitted and the entire procedure will need to be repeated.
