Bensalem and Bristol School Head Lice Policies

Bensalem and Bristol School Head Lice Policies
Updated on 
January 21, 2020

Schools in Bensalem and Bristol still hold to “no nit” policies, meaning children will not be readmitted after a head lice outbreak if any nits are present.

BENSALEM SCHOOLS

“If a child has Head Lice, a child can be readmitted to school after they have been treated and

remain lice/nit free. It is the parent’s responsibility to provide the name of the product used and date used to the school nurse. The parent should bring their child to the school nurse upon the child’s return to school, prior to reporting to the classroom. The school nurse shall re-examine the child as needed for further infestation. To ensure that nits are killed after hatching, a second treatment is recommended 8-10 days after the first.”

Why Are Lice So Contagious?

Lice are very hearty and crawl from head to head seeking warmth and blood. The more social you are, the more likely it is that you will be exposed to head lice. Anyone with hair is a candidate for lice. Most of us come in contact with other people which means we are at potential risk for getting head lice. Lice are contagious, extremely so. All they need to survive is a little hair that gives them access to the scalp where they find their food: human blood. Once the louse is on the head it lays 6 to 10 eggs a day and lives for 30 days.
