- Parents of students in the Waukee District
- United States of America
The Waukee District's current policy is to NOT notify parents when a case or suspected case of lice has been identified in a student's classroom, or even within the school.
This petition is intended to provide the school with a list of parents that would like to see this policy changed, and for the classroom teacher to send out a parental notification letter or e-mail to the student's parent(s) once a case of lice has been identified in the student's classroom.
While the primary responsibility of lice detection and treatment lies with parents, the parents that sign this petition believe providing this additional notification to parents will provide extra incentive for parents to check their child(ren)'s hair more carefully and frequently, and take the necessary steps to prevent and treat lice.
We believe this additional information provided to parents may help reduce lice infection and reinfection in Waukee schools.
We, the undersigned, want the Waukee School District to implement a policy to notify the parent(s) of a student in writing (or e-mail) when a case or suspected case of lice has been identified in the student's classroom.
