Criteria for sending kids home from school
Please make sure that the school has your current home phone number, your work number (both parents if they work), and the number of a friend or relative you will permit to take charge of your child, if he/she is sick or injured.
Northland Community Schools has a "No Nit" Policy. This means if your child is sent home with head lice, the nits will need to be combed completely out of your child's hair before they are allowed to return to school. After being sent home with head lice, your child will be inspected before allowing them to return to class. If nits are still present in their hair, they will be sent home again.
If after a third inspection we suspect the infestation is still present, a request will be made to the Cass County Health Department for follow-up and permission to return the child/children to school. If the parents prefer to consult their doctor, his/her signed statement showing that correct treatment has been followed will be required.
