Head Lice (Pediculosis)

posted Dec 15, 2017, 9:20 AM by Ruth Teszeri
Please check your child's head for head lice regularly.  If there is a suspicion of head lice being present in the school, a health screening check is requested.  A student who has head lice is excluded from school until they are treated.  The student is not permitted to return to school until they receive a form from We Care Home Health Services (905-507-6562), a medical practitioner, or a registered lice screening agency employee with a minimum designation of personal service worker certification.  This form must be brought back to the school office before the student can return to class.

Additional information may be found on Halton District School Board's School Health Protocols page.
