Joliet School District 202 Lice Policy

Joliet School District 202 Lice Policy
Updated on 
January 16, 2019

This district has dropped its “no nit” policy. Students with lice should be treated and can return to school afterward.

Control of Cases: Exclude case from school at the end of the school day. Case may return to class after appropriate treatment has begun. “No nit” policies should be discontinued. Cases should be re-inspected by nurse/staff 7-10 days after treatment has begun.

Control of Contacts: No Restrictions. Classroom or school-wide screenings and blanket notification to others of the situation are not recommended.

General Measures: Teach the importance of not sharing combs, brushes, hats, coats, towels, bedding, etc. Store coats, hats, scarves, etc. in individual lockers or on assigned coat hooks. If items are stored on hooks, hang clothing far enough apart to prevent items from touching.

Please consult WCHD if the head lice problem is not resolved despite repeated attempts.

Orange County School Lice Policy

Irvine’s policy deviates substantially and is the strictest one we found. It reads as such: “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. The parent will receive written instructions on the treatment of head lice and a verification of treatment form that must be signed by the parent before the student can be readmitted.
