ADMINISTRATIVE GUIDELINES FOR THE CONTROL OF HEAD LICE
Students in the West Perry School District determined to have head lice infestation upon examination shall be removed from the classroom and sent home. An infestation is determined by looking closely through the hair and scalp for the presence of nits, lymphs or adults. If crawling lice are not seen, the presence of nits within a 1/4 inch from the scalp confirmas that a person is infested and therefore, should be treated.
After treatment, the student shall be re-examined by the school nurse and returned to class
