Hinsdale, Western Springs and Westmont School Head Lice Policies

Hinsdale, Western Springs and Westmont School Head Lice Policies
Updated on 
October 7, 2019

Schools in Hinsdale, Western Springs and Westmont no longer hold to strict “no nit” head lice policies.

HINSDALE SCHOOLS

Lice

“Parents should regularly check their children for evidence of head lice and provide immediate treatment if head lice are detected. If a child has evidence of head lice the school should be informed. Contact the school if you are not sure your child has head lice and you need an

opinion. Active head lice should be treated with a pediculicide shampoo and combing.

Following treatment or manual removal of head lice, the school nurse may check the child for live lice only with parental consent.”

WESTERN SPRINGS SCHOOLS

Pediculosis (Head Lice)

“If a student is identified at school as having evidence of head lice infestation, then the student will be sent home for treatment. A student who is infested with head lice shall not be allowed to attend school until (1) a written statement has been received from a parent or guardian that the infestation has been properly treated and (2) an examination by District health services personnel indicates that the student is free from head lice. Following re-admittance, the student shall be re examined within 7 calendar days by District health services personnel to assure that the student remains free of head lice. If evidence of continuing infestation exists, the student shall be sent home for treatment and not allowed to attend school until the above re-admittance conditions are satisfied.”

WESTMONT SCHOOLS

“If a student is identified as having head lice after live lice or nits (eggs) are found in the hair, the child’s parent/guardian will be notified. After home treatment, the child may return to school. A letter will be sent to the families of students indicating that a case of head lice was identified in that classroom. Information on identification, treatment, and prevention is available from the school health office.”

Families and Holidays -- Why We See Jump in Incidence of Head Lice After Thanksgiving and Christmas

We know the positives of family and friend get-togethers to celebrate the holidays. How fun it can be for little cousins to play with each other and for multiple generations to be in one room.
