PROCEDURE

  1. School nursing management of the student with head lice, and support for his/her parent/guardian, will be provided within established parameters of safe, researchbased standards of prevention and control, with the objective of having the student fully participate in all educational and school-sponsored activities to the maximum extent possible.
  2. Students with identified head lice or nits may ride District transportation, participate in all classroom and educational activities, including field trips, and will not be isolated from their peers.
  3. Teachers and other school personnel will maintain discretion and confidentiality when dealing with students who have head lice or nits.
