The item about head lice that was scheduled to be discussed at tonight’s Mt. Diablo Unified School District school board meeting has been taken off the agenda.
We’re hearing the district believes the item needs more review before it is brought before the board.
As we first reported, the MDUSD was scheduled to revise their policy on head lice. Under the new policy, if a student has head lice, the parents will be notified, and the student with head lice will stay in school and “not be isolated or otherwise be subjected to restrictions of his/her activities,” according to the district.
We were looking at the full agenda this evening, researching other topics, and noticed the item about head lice was no longer on the agenda. We asked one board member, and he/she did confirm that it was taken off the agenda.
