Recently, in April of 2014, the Simcoe County District School Board updated their policy on how to deal with students who have Pediculosis, otherwise known as Lice.  Below are the main points of the policy:

  • Treatment of lice is ultimately the parent/guardian’s responsibility
  • Parents/guardians must learn how to recognize head lice and routinely check their children
  • The public health unit, through Health Connection, may provide written information about head lice to schools, situational mgmt. advice to principals, and consultation to to parents but ultimately Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit public health nurses are not responsible for performing head lice checks.
  • Schools will contact parents/guardians when the child has head lice
  • The school must notify parents/guardians (P/G herafter) within that same class to check their children (FORM A7210  – 1)
  • Parents of children with head lice will be sent FORM A 7210 -2 which contains options about treatment
  • If the school suspects head lice, the Principal or designate must contact the P/G; the student will be excused from school immediately; if the P/G is unable to pick up the child, the child may stay at school but head contact with others should be discouraged
  • Students are to be welcomed back as soons as possible after initial treatment is completed.  A signed form FORM A7210 – 3 will be required before the student returns.  This form will indicate the student has been treated and the parent is aware a second treatment is required 7 – 10 days from then; STUDENTS WILL BE RECHECKED BEFORE RETURNING TO THE CLASSROOM even after the treatment; if a student is not free of lice, the child will not be readmitted to class; parent will be contacted and child will go home with another FORM A7210 – 3
  • When a student experiences repeated incidences of head lice, the principal will consult with the Simcoe Muskoka Health Unit through HEALTH CONNECTION for written information about lice, situational management advice, and consultation for Parent or Guardian.

Here is some information on Lice regarding how to identify it and get rid of it.
