The Pleasanton Unified School District has set up a meeting to talk with parents concerned about the new lice procedures recently implemented by the district. The meeting will be on March 18 at 7 p.m. in the multipurpose room at Alisal Elementary.
Parents are upset about changes in how the district is dealing with lice cases in classrooms. The changes prompted concerned parent Lisa Swartzendruber to start a petition, which now has more than 300 signatures.

The district emailed the following information to parents:
Head lice is an ongoing issue in school communities. The District has realigned its Head Lice procedure with the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) guidelines. Parents are invited to an informational meeting to hear from District nurses.
