Head Lice

Stricker staff and parents will work to prevent the infestation and spread of head lice by doing the following:

  1. Each classroom will establish and follow a hat and coat policy. Coats will either be hung on racks, or chair backs. Students will not be allowed to pile coats on the floor.
  2. If a student is found to have head lice or nits, he/she will be sent home for treatment and will not be allowed back until reexamined and found free of infestation of lice or nits.
  3. All siblings of the student (in the school) will be checked for infestation. If lice are found, each student having signs of lice will be sent home for treatment. A note will be sent home with the students of that room.
  4. The classroom teacher will informally check all other students in his/her class for infestation.
  5. If a large number of students in the school are infected, a general school-wide check will be held.
