While in accordance with CDC guidelines, the current head lice policy in effect in the Upper Dublin School District does not provide for effective communication regarding this problem.
Because of this, the School District's lice guidelines have proven to be ineffective in preventing the spread of lice. The FWES community has had to endure the wide-spread effects of social stigma, emotional and financial distress, distraction from the educational process, and disruption of daily home routines.
With the goal of improving the policy, we the undersigned respectfully request the following changes: 1)school-wide notification of head lice cases, to include parents & staff; 2)follow-up head checks of infested students by school nurse two weeks after initial report of infestation.
