Ugh... I can go on a tangent with this. Sorry but rant time.
So in our school, a Public Charter School, when I first came here, the protocol was just check the classroom the child came from.
I'm not sure how it went from this to... "You have to check EVERY CHILD in our school for lice, to be proactive."
I WAS suppose to start this next semester, but lo and behold. I leave one day, JUST ONE DAY to go to a doctor's appointment, and I come back being told that we have a lice infestation, thanks to my lovely sub, who does not check well enough apparently (Just the neck). So I come back, and now I have to check ALL THE SCHOOL because of one kid. Which in the end, DID NOT HAVE LICE.
I asked my School Health Coordinator and she states "If your admin team want you to do this, you have to do it."
So basically we have no established protocol.
The sub wasn't helpful at all, because all she checked was the neck and missed like 2 kids in my school.
I'm going to do it, anyways. I have to do it, and I'll actually do a good job on it.
I actually found one case, that actually does have lice. So eh, this has some benefits.
