Galveston School Head Lice Policy
Updated on

Schools in the Galveston area work with parents to get children back to the classroom quickly, sometimes as soon as a single treatment has been implemented.

GALVESTON ISD

Head Lice (All Grade Levels) Head lice, although not an illness or a disease, is very common among children and is spread very easily through head-to-head contact during play, sports, or nap time and when children share things like brushes, combs, hats, and headphones. If careful observation indicates that a student has head lice, the school nurse will contact the student’s parent to determine whether the child will need to be picked up from school and to discuss a plan for treatment with an FDA approved medicated shampoo or cream rinse that may be purchased from any drug or grocery store. After the student has undergone one treatment, the parent should check in with the school nurse to discuss the treatment used. The nurse can also offer additional recommendations, including subsequent treatments and how best to get rid of lice and prevent their return. More information on head lice can be obtained from the TDSHS website at http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/schoolhealth/lice.shtm.

Do Chemical Lice Shampoos Work?

Unfortunately, they often do not. "The days of being able to wash with some pesticide-infused shampoo are gone.", states Sara Zukoff, assistant professor of entomology at Kansas State University in an article in the Wichita Eagle written by Gabrielle Dunn. Professor Zukoff lays the blame for this on the growing resistance of lice to the chemical treatments.
