Pediculosis (Head Lice)

As of December 2015, the board has revised Procedure 321 which deals with pediculosis in schools.


It is important to note that "Students identified with head lice or nits will be supported to receive treatment and will no longer be stigmatized by being excluded from school."


Parents are strongly encouraged to:

  • Speak to their children about head lice and teach them to avoid head-to-head contact that they should not share combs, hairbrushes, caps, hats or hair ornaments with other students.
  • Examine their children’s head weekly for signs of infestation as part of routine hygiene or more often during an outbreak;
  • Notify the school and others (e.g. family members, neighbours) who have come into contact with the child who has head lice;

Teachers will:

  • Coninue to report suspected cases of head lice to the principal; and
  • Limit activities in the classroom where heads would touch when a child has been identified as having pediculosis until he or she has been treated.


The School will:

  • Continue to screen students, as necessary, for head lice;
  • Notify parents of students in the same class and/or riding on the same bus as a student identified with head lice;
  • Distribute head lice information to all staff and families of students through our newsletter, website, and/or school handbook.
