To all Stoddert families,
The following is a reminder regarding the DCPS’ policy on lice in the school…
A student diagnosed with Pediculosis (infestation by live head lice) may remain in class that day; however, parents or guardians should commence treatment at the conclusion of the school day. The child may return to school upon submitting to the school nurse a parents’ or guardian’s note attesting to the fact that the student is undergoing treatment. A student with only Nits (eggs) should not be excluded from school; however, the school nurse, principal or designee shall send a note to the parents or guardians advising them to monitor the child for re-infestation.
Please review the school’s LICE fact sheet for more information.
