Huntsville School Lice Policy

Huntsville School Lice Policy
Updated on 
March 27, 2019

Schools in the Huntsville area are in alignment with current CDC and NASN policies with regard to head lice/nits, in that they allow students to remain in school or return to school as long as no live bugs are detected.

Huntsville City Schools’ Head Lice (Pediculosis)Procedure requires the parent, guardian or designee be contacted and required to pick up the student in a timely manner should live lice be detected on the student’s scalp or hair while at school. In the event only nits (eggs) are found, the student may remain in school for the remainder of the school day.Head lice can be a nuisance, but have not been shown to carry disease. Also, getting head lice has nothing to do with personal hygiene or cleanliness of the home or school.

Checking for head lice is not a routine nursing procedure.  Students with live lice will be sent home and should be treated before returning to school the next day. It is recommended that each family periodically check their child’s head for nits and live lice. For more information, please visit the website at https://www.cdc.gov/parasites/lice/head/schools.html.
