Bartlett and MIllington School Head Lice Policies

Bartlett and MIllington School Head Lice Policies
Updated on 
November 7, 2019

Schools in Bartlett and Millington do not hold to strict “no nit” policies. Students must be treated satisfactorily before returning to school.

BARTLETT AREA SCHOOLS

No student shall be denied an education solely by reason of head lice infestation and his/her educational program shall be restricted only to the extent necessary to minimize the risk of transmitting the infestation.

It shall be the responsibility of the principal or school nurse to notify the parents in the event a child has pediculosis (head lice). A letter shall be sent home by the child to explain the condition, requirements for readmission and deadlines for satisfactory completion of the treatment.

Prior to readmission, satisfactory evidence must be submitted to school personnel that the student has been treated for pediculosis (head lice). This evidence may include but not be limited to:

  1. Proof of treatment with a pediculicide product (head lice shampoo), or
  2. Satisfactory examination by a school health official

Treatment and prevention procedures shall be developed by the Superintendent of schools/or designee in consultation with the school nurse and distributed to all classroom teachers. These procedures shall also be distributed to the parent/guardian of any child that has pediculosis.

Any subsequent incidents of head lice for a student during the school year shall require submission of satisfactory evidence of treatment for head lice and be found free of lice by a school health official.

A student shall be expected to have met all requirements for treatment and return to school no later than two (2) days following exclusion for head lice. All days in excess of the allowable period shall be marked as unexcused absences and referred to the attendance supervisor at the proper time.
