Channel View ISD Head Lice Policy
Here are the defined Lice Policies for the Channel View ISD. Click on the links to see full detail.
A school nurse or administrator who discovers or becomes aware that a child enrolled in a District elementary school has lice shall provide written or electronic notice to parents within the time frames prescribed in law to:
1. The parent of the child with lice as soon as practicable but not later than 48 hours after the administrator or nurse, as applicable, determines or become aware of that fact; and
2. The parent of each child assigned to the same classroom as the child with lice not later than the fifth school day after the date on which the administrator or nurse, as applicable, determines or become aware of that fact.
1. Must include the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for the treatment and prevention of lice; and
2. May not identify the child with lice if the notice is to the parent of each child in the same classroom.
Prevention and care of head lice starts at home. Please check your child’s scalp and hair at home regularly and when lice and/or nits are found, please treat appropriately.
During the school day, if careful observation indicates that a student has head lice, the school nurse will contact the student’s parent to determine whether the child will need to be picked up from school and to discuss a plan for treatment … After the student has undergone one treatment, the parent should check in with the school nurse to discuss the treatment used.
The nurse can also offer additional recommendations, including subsequent treatments, and how best to get rid of lice and prevent their return.
We can help with any questions, concerns, or treatments. Call with any questions.
