Corona School Lice Policy

Corona School Lice Policy
Updated on 
May 8, 2018

Corona-Norfolk Unified School District

The district has a “no live lice” policy which means that children with live bugs will be permitted to remain in school for the day, but will not be allowed to return until there are no signs of live lice. Children with nits will be permitted in school.

“The Governing Board recognizes that head lice infections among students require treatment but do not pose a risk of transmitting disease. The Superintendent or designee shall encourage early detection and
treatment in a manner that minimizes disruption to the educational program and reduces student absences.  

School employees shall report all suspected cases of head lice to the school nurse or designee as soon as possible. If a student is found with active, adult head lice, he/she shall be allowed to stay in school until the end of the school day.  The parent/guardian of any such student shall be given information about the treatment of head lice and encouraged to begin treatment of the student immediately and to check all members of the family. The parent/guardian also shall be informed that the student shall be checked upon return to school the next day and allowed to remain in school if no active head lice are detected.

Upon the student's return to school, the school nurse or designee shall check the student for active head lice. If it is determined that the student remains infected with head lice, the school nurse or designee shall contact the student's parent/guardian to discuss treatment. As needed, he/she may provide additional resources and/or referral to the local health department, health care providers, or other agencies.

If a student is found consistently infested with head lice, he/she may be referred to a multidisciplinary team, which may consist of the school nurse, representatives from the local health department and  social services, and other appropriate individuals, to determine the best approach for identifying and resolving problems contributing to the student's head lice infestation. When it is determined that one or more students in a class are infested with head lice, the principal or designee will notify parents/guardians of students in that class and provide them with information about the detection and treatment of head lice.  Staff shall maintain the privacy of students identified as having head lice.  Revised: July 15, 2014 (Adopted: 9/6/83)” Source: Corono-Norco Unified School Dist.

Lice Questions for Dr. Stephen Beck—LiceDoctors On-Staff Physician

At LiceDoctors, we receive many questions each day about head lice. There is much conflicting information on line and you may not know where to turn with questions.
