• Head Lice: If your child has head lice, contact your school’s health office. After treating your child’s hair to kill the live lice and removing eggs from the hair, students need to be seen by the health aide, health aide plus (LPN), or travel school nurse (RN) before returning to school. Consult your child’s physician for treatment options and guidance. Your child may not ride the bus or return to school until cleared by the health aide, health aide plus (LPN), or travel school nurse (RN). MCCSC Lice guidelines may be found on the MCCSC website.

Please feel free to contact your student’s health office for guidance.
