Head Lice

    Children are checked periodically throughout the year for any signs or symptoms of head lice. Head lice can come from anywhere - a classmate, an upholstered seat in a movie theater or an automobile, or another child's sweater or hat. Any child suspected of having head lice will be excluded from school until the child's hair has been treated with lice shampoo and all nits (eggs) have been removed. A parent must accompany the child to school to receive an admit slip from the office.
