Boca Raton School Head Lice Policy

Boca Raton School Head Lice Policy
Updated on 
July 4, 2019

Palm Beach County Schools continue to enforce strict “no nit” policies for students found to have lice. This means children are not allowed to return to the classrooms until all evidence of lice (bugs or nits) is gone.

PALM BEACH COUNTY

Response to Identified Infestations

The principal is responsible for ensuring that contact with the student's parent/guardian has been attempted and for excluding from school any student who is found to have lice or nits, as soon as is practically possible or at the end of the school day. All reasonable efforts will be made to prevent close contact of affected students with others until dismissal.

The principal will permit the re-admission of any students after they are determined to be free of lice or nits by the school nurse or assigned designee.

Persistent problems will be referred, by the school nurse or principal’s designee, to appropriate agencies for assistance.

Egg cases farther from the scalp are easier to see but tend to be empty or nonviable and are of no consequence. The school nurse will inform the principal or designee of any active cases of pediculosis in the school.
