Brooklyn School Head Lice Policies

Brooklyn School Head Lice Policies
Updated on 
February 16, 2020

Schools in Brooklyn are in alignment with the NYC Department of Education Policy for head lice, and do not restrict attendance solely on the presence of nits.

BROOKLYN AREA SCHOOLS

Lice Policy

“In accordance with New York City Department of Education, ISB excludes for live lice and students with nits are able to stay in school.

Lice checks are performed school-wide three times per year after summer break, winter break, and spring break. Spot checks are done if a student, parent, or teacher has concerns about lice. Classroom checks are performed when a case of lice has been reported in the classroom.

If your student is found to have live lice during these checks, you will be called to pick them up as soon as possible. They will wait in either the Health Office or Reception area. If your student is found to have nits during one of these checks, you will be called and/or emailed by the Health Office. At that time, you can decide if you would like your student to remain in school or be picked up.”

Head Lice

“Can my child go to school with head lice?"

NYC Schools have a “No Head Lice” policy. Students who have live head lice are not allowed to go to school until they are lice-free. Students with nits are still allowed to attend.

Students may return to school the day after treatment for head lice as long as there are no live lice upon re-inspection by designated school personnel.

Students will be re-inspected by a school worker 14 days after the treatment to make sure there are no live head lice.”

Tips On Preventing, Identifying and Treating Head Lice

LiceDoctors advises families to be vigilant about head lice at all times especially during summer and fall which are peak seasons for head lice infestations. Head lice are primarily transferred through head-to-head contact, therefore, children coming into close contact with each other facilitates transmission. The bad news is that chemical treatments are ineffective, as lice have developed a resistance. The good news is there are all-natural methods which are 100% effective in treating lice infestations.
