Boynton Beach and Delray Beach School Head Lice Policies

Boynton Beach and Delray Beach School Head Lice Policies
Updated on 
September 21, 2019

Boynton Beach and Delray Beach are in the Palm Beach County School District and, therefore, stick to a strict “no nit” policy for head lice in the school. This means students are excluded from attending if any signs of lice, including eggs or nits, are found.

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.

Can Lice Eggs Reattach to the Hair if they Fall Off?

Lice eggs, also called nits, can not get back into the hair if they fall off. The only way to contract a case of head lice is for a louse to crawl into the hair. It is Highly Unlikely that Lice Eggs (Nits) will Fall off the Hair Nits are glued to the hair, therefore it is not typical for them to fall out. In fact, if you find a nit in the hair, you will see how challenging it is to remove it.
