ELK GROVE SCHOOL HEAD LICE POLICIES

This district allows students to attend school after treatment for nits, but not with live lice. This represents a change from the prior “no nit” which forbade students with lice eggs from entering school. Below is the policy:

“The Elk Grove Unified School District has a “NO LIVE HEAD LICE” procedure.  This means when a student is found to have live head lice, the parent is notified. The student is sent home from school.  The parent is instructed to treat their student for lice before returning to school. Readmission is contingent on the student passing a head lice re-screening.”

Siblings are also likely to have contracted a case, but to a slightly lesser degree than mom. Why is that? Head lice are extremely contagious. If they have access to another head, especially if the one they are on is crowded with other lice and eggs, they will take advantage of that opportunity.

Video Lice Tip Of The Day

How do you know if a nit is a nit? A nit is glued onto the hair at an angle. If you take your finger and slide it down the hair shaft, dandruff will slide right off. Another way to find out if a nit is really a nit, is to remove it and place it on a damp paper towel. A nit will appear black against a white background.
