Head Lice Letter Fall 2018

TO:   Parents/Guardians of Swain County Schools’ student

FROM:  Mark Sale, Superintendent

RE: Active Head Lice

Swain County Schools need your help. Your son/daughter was found to have active head lice.  This is not a disease, nor does it mean your son/daughter is dirty. To prevent further spread, Swain County Schools will adhere to the following procedure:

  1. The student’s parent/guardian will be contacted and the student will go home as soon   as possible.
  2. In order for the student to return to school, the parent/guardian must bring the student to school where a school employee will check again for head lice.  If there are no active head lice the student will be admitted to school. If lice are found, the student will be sent back home.

Please note that the student will receive only one (1) excused absence to help with this situation.  Any absences after that will be unexcused.  You may consult your primary care provider or your school’s school nurse if needed.   Head lice information is attached.  Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
