Head Lice

  • West Fargo Public Schools has adopted a No Nits Practice when dealing with learners with head lice. Learners with nits or head lice will be removed from other children. The child's parent/guardian will be required to remove the child from school immediately and will be given written information on the proper treatment of head lice. Learners will be readmitted to school only if there are not nits and the school nurse has judged the treatment effective. Routine classroom screening will not be done and notification letters will only be sent as appropriate.
