will be provided.

have the student’s head checked upon return to school.

- The parent/guardian is notified and encouraged to pick the nits from the student’s hair at least
daily for the next two weeks.
- The student is not sent home from school.
- Information related to detection and elimination of head lice is sent home with the student.
Conroe ISD Student Handbook 2018-2019 (p. 67)
If careful observation indicates that a student has head lice, the school nurse will contact the student’s parent to determine whether the student will need to be picked up from school and discuss a plan for treatment with an FDA-approved medicated shampoo or cream rinse that may be purchased from any drug or grocery store. Parents may also wish to consult their healthcare provider for effective treatment options. After the student has undergone a treatment, the parent should check in with the school nurse to discuss the treatment used.
We can help with any questions, concerns, or treatments. Call with any questions.
