Fort Lauderdale Area School Lice Policies

Fort Lauderdale Area School Lice Policies
Updated on 
May 19, 2018

This district retains its “no nit” lice policy which stipulates that students with head lice or nits are not permitted in school until they are all clear. In 2014, schools dropped the “no nit” policy but re-instated it due to push-back from concerned parents.

“Head Lice (Pediculosis) Parent Information

In consideration of the input solicited from multiple stakeholders during a recent School Board workshop, the District will retain “No Nit” guidelines for head lice management. There will also be some control measures and resources that will supplement our efforts to address the head lice issue. Some of these include parent information on head lice reduction, treatment and control, as well as resources to assist families during the process.

As a community we are all concerned about the health and wellness of our students. It is our collective responsibility to ensure that all students are afforded the opportunity to fully participate in the educational process.”
