Irvine School Lice Policy
Updated on

Irvine School District

The district has a “no nit” policy which means if a child is found to have nits (eggs)non the hair, he or she may not remain in school. The policy is as follows:

“The Irvine Unified School District is committed to providing a safe and healthy learning environment for students. Pediculosis, also known as head lice, is a common condition in schools that contributes to absenteeism. These guidelines should help to prevent the spread of head lice within our school community.

Any student found to have head lice, detected by a live louse or lice eggs (nits), will be removed from the classroom and excluded from attendance. (Title 5 202 Exclusion of Pupils with a Contagious Disease)

The responsible parent / guardian will receive written instructions on the treatment of head lice and a verification of treatment form that must be signed by the parent / guardian before the student can be readmitted. (Ed Code§ 489213)

A student will be allowed up to two excused absences for head lice treatment. Any additional absences will be counted as unexcused. The principal and the school nurse shall work with the parent / guardian of any student who has been deemed to be a chronic case in order to help minimize the student's absences from school. (cf. 5113 - Absences and Excuses) (cf. 4113.1 - Truancy)

Upon return to the school, the parent / guardian must accompany the student and remain present during a pediculosis screening. To prevent further spread, the district will require that all live lice and all nits be removed before a student can attend school. The school nurse or office staff member must approve re-admittance to the school.”

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.

Becoming a LiceDoctors Technician

Of all the things I dreamt of becoming, lice technician was certainly not on the list. When I heard about LiceDoctors through a friend, something told me to check it out. So I did and I have never looked back.
