HEAD LICE INFORMATION
Head lice can occur at any time of year and can happen to ANYONE. Thankfully, they do not pose any serious health risk. Please be vigilant about checking your child’s head from time to time. A tell-tale sign of possible lice would be if someone is scratching their head a lot. Winfield School’s policy is as follows: students with live lice are not allowed in school; if a student is found with live lice, they are sent home and not allowed to be re-admitted until they have been treated and found to have no more live lice. Please refer to the Head Lice Fact Sheet for more information from the DuPage County Health Department. There are over-the-counter remedies for lice as well as lice removal “salons” in the area.
VISION AND HEARING SCREENING
All Winfield District 34 students participate in vision and hearing screening annually, as mandated. Vision screening is not, however, a substitute for a complete eye and vision examination by an eye doctor. Those students whose optometrist or opthalmologist has completed and signed a report indicating that an examination has been administered within the previous twelve months are not required to undergo the vision screening at school. Required grades for vision screening are pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, second eight, special education, and transfer students. Required grades for hearing screening are pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, first, second, third, special education, and transfer students. Questions regarding vision and hearing screening may be directed to the school nurse.
