Escondido School Head Lice Policy

Escondido School Head Lice Policy
Updated on 
July 2, 2019

Schools in the Escondido area do not adhere to a strict “no nit” policy, which means students without live bugs are allowed to remain in the classroom.

If you suspect your child may have head lice, or have any questions about the prevention and treatment of head lice, contact your school Health Technician for additional information.

Parents/Guardians of students identified with live head lice will be contacted to pick the student up from school, and will be provided with additional information on the treatment of head lice. The student may return to the classroom when he/she is free of live head lice. Parents/Guardians are encouraged to bring the student to the Health Office the next morning to be checked for live head lice. Students with nits only may remain at school, and parent/guardian will receive a letter regarding the treatment of nits. If an elementary student is identified at school with live head lice, all of the students in the class will be checked.

If two students in the class are identified with live head lice, a classroom notification will be sent home.  Source EUSD Health Information

Who Gets Head Lice and How Did My Child Get It?

Let’s be clear: ANYONE can get head lice and it is often impossible to pinpoint the source of your child’s infestation, as lice are very prevalent and very contagious. No One is Immune to Head Lice Got hair? If the answer if yes, then you are a candidate for head lice. Even if you have a buzz cut, lice can attach to the hair and remain there. Lice do not discriminate among hair types; if they can reach the hair, they will climb up it to get to the scalp.
