Glendale and Peoria School Lice Policies

Glendale and Peoria School Lice Policies
Updated on 
April 18, 2019

Each school district sets its own policies with regard to head lice. Peoria schools do not enforce a “no nit” policy, meaning children are able to return to school once treatment has begun, while Glendale schools continue to exclude children from the classroom if they have live bugs OR nits. Check with your school nurse for particulars on your child’s school lice policy.

GLENDALE PUBLIC SCHOOL

Head Lice, Bed Bugs and Other Parasites

Head lice, bed bugs and other parasites are easily transmitted from one person to another. It has nothing to do with person hygiene, anyone can become infested. That is why students infested with live lice bugs, bed bugs or other parasites will not be allowed to return to school until treatment has been received and live bugs are gone. Upon completion of treatment the nurse will evaluate the student to make sure they can return to the classroom. In order to take preventative measures, notify the nurse at the first sign of infestation.

Pediculosis (Lice Infestation)

Students with pediculosis shall be excluded from school until treatment specific for pediculosis has been initiated and the student is symptom free.  Students with live lice will not be able to return to their classroom.  The school nurse will contact parents to pick up their child as soon as possible so that treatment can begin.  Any siblings of the student will also be checked for lice.  Students will be excluded the following school day(s) until no live lice or nits are found. The student must be cleared by the nurse prior to returning to school.  The parent/guardian will be provided written information about pediculosis, treatment procedures, and readmission requirements.”
