OXFORD CITY SCHOOLS 

POLICY ON LICE


Head Lice Students are checked for head lice once a month or as deemed necessary. If live lice are found, the student’s parents will be required to take the student home and treat him/her with a lice killing product. A parent must accompany the student back to school, along with proof of treatment, and be checked by the school nurse or designee for readmission to class. If nits are found, the student will be allowed to stay in class. The parent will be notified to treat the student’s hair and will be given instructions on removing the nits.
