Bakersfield Schools Lice Policy

Bakersfield Schools Lice Policy
Updated on 
May 12, 2018

The district supports a “no nit” policy.

Students with head lice will be sent home for treatment.

“School employees shall report all suspected cases of head lice to the school nurse or designee as soon as possible. The nurse or designee shall examine the student and any siblings or affected students or members of the same household. If nits or lice are found, the student shall be excluded and parents/guardians informed about recommended treatment , ways to check the hair, and sources of further information.

The principal shall send home the notification required by law for excluded students.

If there are more than two students affected in any one classroom, all students in the class shall be examined and information about head lice shall be sent home to all parents/guardians in the class. Excluded students may return to school when the parents/guardians bring them to school and reexamination by the school nurse or designee shows that all pests and nits have been removed. Excluded students shall not ride any school bus until they are declared free of all pests and nits.” Source: Beardsley Elementary Handbook
