Islip School Head Lice Policy

Islip School Head Lice Policy
Updated on 
November 30, 2019

Schools in the Islip area do not hold to a strict “no nit” policy with regard to head lice. Instead, children are allowed to return to school once treatment has begun.

ISLIP SCHOOL DISTRICT

Head Lice

“If your child has head lice, please call the health office so the rest of the class can be checked. Do not send the child to school on the bus until he/she has been cleared by the school nurse. The student should be admitted to school with proof that he/she has received a first treatment of RID or R&C shampoo and is rid of all nits from hair. Such proof might be a box top from the product used or a note from the parent stating that the medication had been used. Proof of a second treatment, in 5 or 7 days, is also necessary. The second treatment is essential to kill any NITS which resisted the first shampoo.”

WEST ISLIP PUBLIC SCHOOLS

“Much like the aforementioned district, West Islip schools rely on the judgment of the school nurse. Children are sent home to be treated for lice and the nurse checks them when they return. The child is then checked 7 days later. Information is sent home to parents apprising them of the contagious nature of lice and advising them on treatment and identification protocol. The district references recommendations of the CDC.”
