Alexandria School Lice Policy

Alexandria School Lice Policy
Updated on 
February 5, 2019

Schools in Alexandria do not retain a No Nit policy. Below is the Alexandria schools’ lice policy:

“When a child is identified with an active head lice infestation at school, parents are notified of the suspected infestation and provided with information about treatment. Students will be sent home at the end of the day and may return to school after they have received appropriate treatment at home. Students with nits only are not excluded from school.

Please know that we share your concern about head lice. If you detect head lice in your child, please let the school nurse know. ACPS school nurses will alert parents and guardians when there is an unusual clustering of head lice cases, while still seeking to protect the privacy of individual students. By working together, we can successfully eliminate head lice. Please feel free to contact your school nurse if you have any questions.”

Time to Say Goodbye to Lice Stigma

Happily, the stigma associated with head lice has diminished compared with 10 years ago. Sadly, it does still exist. Lice are so common today and there is no reason why there should be any stigma to having lice.
