Joliet School District 202 Lice Policy
Updated on 
January 17, 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.

Kids With Active Social Lives at Higher Risk for Head Lice

Children with active social lives are the most likely demographic to contract head lice. With over 20 years of experience in treating head lice, LiceDoctors owner and industry pioneer Wendy Beck understands why. The reason for this stems from how head lice are transmitted. Beck estimates that at least 95% of head lice are transmitted through head to head contact. Lice move from one head to another so it makes sense that children who are social and are in close contact with other children would be the most likely candidates to get head lice.
