Mandatory Lice Checks

Tuesday, September 8 — UPPER SCHOOL CAMPUS

All students returning for on-campus learning must be screened for lice before they can attend class on the first day of school. All screenings (Pre-K through 12th) will take place on Tuesday, September 8, 2020 at our Eric F. Ross Upper School Campus. 
We will also be using our SchoolPass app on Tuesday for all students to complete their wellness screenings. This will give us the opportunity to try out our system and address any technical concerns prior to the first day of school. Please be sure to complete the wellness screening for each child(ren) you are bringing. Nurse Ilena and Nurse Roberta will ask to see the green check while checking you in.
Students must arrive to their screening with clean, unknotted hair and should be accompanied by a parent/caregiver. Lice checks will be held completely outdoors in the lower lot area of our Upper School campus. After parking in either the main or lower lot, families should line up, socially distanced from one another. Masks must be worn at all times — by students and parents/caregivers — while on campus.

If lice or their eggs are found on your child's head they must be treated through a lice removal company or at home and rescreened before a student is permitted to attend school. 
Students who are unable to attend on September 8 due to extenuating circumstances must provide one of the following pieces of documentation:
  • Proof from your pediatrician of a negative lice check dated on or after September 3, 2020.
