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.”

Tempe School Lice Policy

Tempe schools view lice as a nuisance so they do not exclude children for the presence of nits in the hair. Once an infested child has begun treatment and the live bugs are gone, he or she may return to the classroom. HEAD LICE/PEDICULOSIS While head lice are not considered an infectious disease, they are more commonly found in children due to their close contact with each other. Parents should discourage their children from sharing personal items such as hats, scarves, head bands, helmets, brushes, combs, or pillows to decrease the likelihood of spread from one person to another.
