Agoura Hills, Calabasas and Malibu School Head Lice Policies
Updated on 
May 31, 2019

Schools in the Agoura Hills, Calabasas, and Malibu areas no longer adhere to strict no-nit policies, but if live lice are present students will not be allowed to attend classes.

AGOURA HILLS AND CALABASAS

Because head lice are not uncommon and are easily spread, the Superintendent or designee shall send information about the treatment and control of head lice to parents/guardians as needed to prevent the spread of infestations. As part of the health curriculum, teachers shall stress the importance of preventive measures.

The Board of Education recognizes that responsibility for the treatment of head lice rests with the home. When lice are found, the student shall be sent home as soon as possible with proper parental notification.

Staff shall make every effort to maintain the privacy of students identified as having head lice and excluded for treatment.

Thank you for your cooperation.  If you have any questions please contact your health care provider or visit Los Angeles County of Public Health.” Source: Las Virgenes USD

MALIBU PUBLIC SCHOOLS

Head Lice – Children who exhibit evidence of live head lice will be excluded by classroom staff, and may not return until after treatment has begun and there are no live head lice.
