After they have been treated and you have gone over their head thoroughly to be sure that there are no live lice. They must report to the school nurse's office to be checked before they can return to the classroom. Although it would be ideal to have no nits left on the hair I know that this is not always possible. I will check the child and make the final determination as to whether or not they can return to the classroom. They will also need to be checked at 1 week intervals to be sure there is no recurrance.
It would be greatly appreciated if you would send in a bottle with your child's name on it. All children do not take the same type of medication, some take chewable, some liquid and some do swallow pills, because of this variety it is hard for me to keep a supply of all kinds. So if your child has a particular preference for caplets or other types please send in their own bottle.
Yes! It is very helpful to let the school nurse know when your child has been seen by a physician. This will help if something happens in school or another child has the same symptoms, especially for things like strep throat, conjuctivitis or injuries.
You should get a note from the doctor after illnesses or injuries. This will help the school nurse take care of your child and set up any accommodations that might be necessary for your child's return.
Sometimes especially in the winter the air in the building is very dry and contacts have been known to fall out or tear. In that case either have an extra pair of contacts or a pair of glasses in school.
