Downers Grove Schools
This district abides by recommendations of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American Academy of Pediatrics, the National Association of School Nurses and many others. Because lice are not an illness, it is recommended that school not exclude children. Research shows that most lice transmission occurs out of school.
The district educates its students as to how to prevent the spread of lice and advise not making direct head-to-head contact. The nurse generally does not send home letters to parents when a case occurs. When several cases occur, a letter will be sent home.
This district also does not exclude students because of head lice, but requires students with lice to be treated at home. The parents should let the school nurse know after treatment so she can check the child upon return. Children with live lice cannot remain in school after treatment. Everyone in the family should be checked and treated if necessary.
