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.”

Do I Need To Worry About the Batting Helmets that my Child’s Little League Team Shares?

The short answer is “not really”. While we recommend that each child have his own batting helmet, it is not likely that a louse will leave the head and go onto the helmet.
