School Trip Illness Policy

PCDS has in place a School Trip Illness Policy to ensure the health and safety of all students and chaperones on overnight school sponsored trips and also to minimize the effect of highly communicable diseases. Please read this policy and contact the Health Center with your questions.

Head Lice Policy and Resources

Phoenix Country Day School’s Head Lice Policy has been updated, based on recommended guidelines by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), National Association of School Nurses (NASN), and the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH). These organizations recommend that a student not be excluded from school for having nits and that the management of head lice should not disrupt a student’s educational process. Confirmation of lice infestation does not warrant exclusion, but does require treatment.

Also available in the Health Center Forms & Documents is a document that includes information about head lice treatment, facts, and information. Download this document.
