Head Lice Policy

Dear Parents/Guardians:

We strongly believe in creating and maintaining a safe and healthy learning environment for all children to thrive academically, socially and emotionally.

Occasionally, we experience situations where a student with head lice is identified at school. We realize that this can be disruptive for children not only at school but also at home.  The Northbridge School District takes the treatment seriously and therefore have established an effective, appropriate and comprehensive plan to treat such a condition.

The attached is the Northbridge Public School’s Head Lice Policy on the treatment of head lice, and an Informational Letter.

Please visit The National Pediculosis Association website to learn more information.
