Head Lice Response Letter & Environmental Control Best Practices
All Grades

Principal Bulletin Informational

The Health Services Department has developed a response letter to address parent questions and concerns about the presence of head lice in our classrooms and other on-site locations, such as gym locker rooms. The letter is intended to inform school site administrators, teachers and staff of the district’s policy on the prevention and treatment of head lice. Additionally, Health Services has collaborated with the SCUSD Operations Department to inform all district employees of the recommended environmental controls when head lice or a single louse is discovered and reported.
