Kent Schools Lice Policy
Updated on 
March 6, 2019

Unlike surrounding school districts, Kent schools retain a “no nit” lice policy. Children with live bugs or nits will not be permitted to attend school.

“Head Lice – According to district procedure, any child with lice or nits will be excluded from school until adequately treated, and ALL nits are removed. Students will check in at the school office before returning to class. The first two days of absence because of head lice are excused. Any day of absence after two days is unexcused.”

There is no need to have your child miss another day of school. LiceDoctors will make a house call to your family and your technician will work diligently to ensure that your child is admitted to school the next day. Treatments are non-toxic and safe for all members of the family. Call LiceDoctors for your appointment in the Kent area at 206-316-8637 .
