Bowie Schools Lice Policy

Like all schools in Prince George's County, Bowie schools have a “no nit” policy; children who have nits (eggs) will not be permitted to attend school.

“Children who have visible live lice or nits tightly attached at the scalp will be excluded from school at the end of the school day until the first treatment is completed. 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. The school nurse will also check siblings and close friends of the infested child and may notify school nurses in other schools where siblings may attend. Parents will be notified preferably by phone or by note at the end of the school day. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that in an elementary school the most efficient way to deal with the problem is to notify the parents of all of the children in the affected child’s classroom, asking that they check their child’s scalp at home. The school nurse will send home a Head Lice Fact Sheet from the Maryland State Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and a letter to parents of students in the index child’s classroom. Students will be readmitted to school with proof of treatment.”

LICE TREATMENT AND NIT REMOVAL OPTIONS: LICEDOCTORS OR LICE CLINICS OF AMERICA AIRALLÉ HEATED AIR DEVICES

Many lice salons or clinics use a heat powered device to get rid of head lice. These devices are expensive for the salons and combined with rent and overhead, the salons need to charge a lot to cover costs.
