Head Lice Guide

New LICE Bill 

BISD is now required by Senate Bill 1566 to notify you that a student in your child’s classroom has been identified as having head lice.  The students’ name will remain confidential in accordance with the law.  We will continue to monitor this particular situation and address it appropriately and timely.

Attached are resources with information about the treatment and prevention of head lice in English and Spanish.  Please contact your local physician should you have any concerns about your particular child. 

Sincerely,

BISD Nurses
