Gilbert Arizona School Lice Policy

Gilbert Arizona School Lice Policy
Updated on 
April 23, 2019

Gilbert schools do not hold to a strict "no nit" policy, meaning children are allowed to return to the classroom once live bugs and most nits have been removed.

Head Lice/Nits Information:  Lice infestation has nothing to do with socioeconomic status or hygiene standards.

Anyone can get head lice. Lice and nits are commonly transmitted in children when they share combs, brushes, hats and coats. Lice checks are performed on students when a parent or teacher suspects their child/student has lice or if classmates and/or siblings have lice.

If a student is found to have live head lice, their parent/guardian will be notified to take their child home. The child must be treated and have most of the nits removed from the hair shafts before returning to school. Students may not return to school until all live lice have been removed.

The Health Office Staff must recheck the student's hair prior to returning to school. Elementary school Health Office Staff will send home a general letter when lice have been detected in the classroom of your student.
