Draft Updates to Head Lice Policy

At the May 15th ANCS board meeting, Executive Director Matt Underwood and Nurse Leigh Hicks presented proposed updates to the school’s head lice policy. The draft changes are designed to bring the school’s policy and practices into alignment with guidance on head lice management from the Centers for Disease Control, American Academy of Pediatrics, and National Association of School Nurses. Please see the link for the proposed changes. An information meeting for interested parents will be held at the start of the new school year, and the board will take up the proposed policy changes at its August board meeting. If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact Matt Underwood.
