Hampton School Head Lice Policy

Hampton School Head Lice Policy
Updated on 
November 20, 2019

The Hampton school lice policy was changed to reflect the standards of practice as recommended by the Center for Disease Control, American Academy of Pediatrics, the National Association of School Nurses, the American School Health Association and many others. The policy indicates that if a child has nits or live bugs a parent/guardian will be contacted to pick the child up at the end of the school day – children will not be able to ride the bus home. The child may return to school the day following treatment after a check with the school nurse finds no live lice present.

Hampton AREA SCHOOLS

“Hampton City Schools Health Services Head Lice Protocol has been changed to reflect current standards of practice as recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the National Association of School Nurses (NASN), the American School Health Association, and many others. They all recommend that students with eggs and/or head lice remain in school and not be immediately excluded. When lice is found on the child at school, that child’s parent/guardian will be contacted and will be instructed to pick up the student at the end of the day, unless excessive infestation is determined by the school nurse. If the student has siblings within Hampton City Schools, the school nurse will contact the school nurse where they attend to have them checked. The student’s parent/guardian will be instructed that, after treatment and no live lice evident, to bring their student to school for the school nurse to examine. The school nurse will examine the child’s scalp to ensure there are no live lice present. If the student still has live lice, then he/she will not be able to stay in school; the parent/guardian will be instructed to see his/her medical provider for further treatment. Once seen by a provider the parent/guardian needs to bring the doctor’s clearance to the school nurse. If the exam shows no live lice the student may remain in school. The school nurse will recheck the student in 7 and 14 days to ensure no live lice are present.”

Silver Spring Schools

Silver Springs district, like most of those surrounding, maintains a “no nit” lice policy. Children with lice or eggs will be sent home from school. School Policies: Experts report than even after using lice-killing treatment, 10-30% of the nits might survive. Hatching will occur in 7-10 days, and could result in reinfestation. Please understand that since it is difficult to distinguish dead nits from live eggs, we cannot be certain whether treated heads have become re-infested. As such, our policy is that no child may return to school until all nits (dead or alive) have been removed.

Lice Removal—Why Doing It Yourself Just Does Not Make Sense

In life, certain things make sense for a DIY project. Painting a wall in your home, cleaning out your garage, even cutting your own bangs (although ultimately usually regrettable!). But other projects are best left to the experts – simply because they produce the best results. Sure, you could buy a hair highlighting product and attempt to do it yourself, but does it really compare to having an expert colorist design your tresses? Same with installing your own lighting in your home (electrocution anyone?) or even unstopping your always recurring bathtub clog (Drano? …Again?
