Lice

View the District's Head Lice Policy here:
If you or your child have any questions or concerns, information about head lice can be found here.
 
What to look for:
  • Small silvery nits fixed to the hair shaft, similar in appearance to dandruff, but not easily removed.
  • Where nits have been hatched, live lice may be seen.

 

If nits or lice are found, please call your healthcare provider regarding appropriate treatment. Your child should stay home from school until they have been treated.

 
Follow the directions for any medication carefully. Cream rinse and conditioners can decrease the effectiveness of the treatment.
