Joliet School District 202 Lice Policy

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.

How Do You Catch Head Lice – Why Are They Contagious?

This is a common question that we get not just from folks in Sacramento, but from all over the country. Do lice fly from head to head? Do they reside in your beach hat and wait a week hoping you will return to put the hat on so they can climb back into your hair?
