NORTHPORT-EAST NORTHPORT SCHOOL DISTRICT

This district has a no nit policy as follows:

“The school nurse will examine the child upon returning to school. If the nurse finds nits, the child must return home until he/she is completely nit free. This no- nit protocol will help prevent transmission and re-infestation, and reduce the need for over-treatment.

The classes, in which there was a child reported with lice, will be carefully checked. However, please continue to check your child(ren) daily for the next few weeks.

Please notify the school health office if your child has lice. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school nurse.”

Tempe School Lice Policy

Tempe schools view lice as a nuisance so they do not exclude children for the presence of nits in the hair. Once an infested child has begun treatment and the live bugs are gone, he or she may return to the classroom. HEAD LICE/PEDICULOSIS While head lice are not considered an infectious disease, they are more commonly found in children due to their close contact with each other. Parents should discourage their children from sharing personal items such as hats, scarves, head bands, helmets, brushes, combs, or pillows to decrease the likelihood of spread from one person to another.
