SMITHTOWN PUBLIC SCHOOLS

“The district sends out information about head lice including: what are lice, symptoms of lice, diagnosis, treatment, follow-up, and home care. The policy is that students with lice must be treated and then return to school the next day. The school nurse checks the hair for live lice. One week later, the child will be checked again to be sure that there are no live lice in the head.”
