Any cases of head lice we find at school are immediately dealt with. The student is checked, the teacher is informed, the rest of the classroom is checked, and we try to make contact with persons who are involved in that student's life.A student may stay in school for the rest of the day should they have live head lice. While they are in school, we remove as best we can the live head lice and nits.
NASN Pediculosis—This is a position statement the National Association of School Nurses takes on head lice. It is a good read and good information.
Head Lice Information—This is "Head Lice 101" for parents, staff, and community. It has pictures and is easy to understand. It does not take long to look at it.
