Kirkland and Botthell School Head Lice Policies

Kirkland and Botthell School Head Lice Policies
Updated on 
August 8, 2019

Students in Botthell and Kirkland attend Lake Washington schools. Both Lake Washington schools adhere to recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) and do not have a “no nit” school” lice policy.

LAKE WASHINGTON

If health room staff or Health Service Specialist find live lice on a student, the student may remain at school for the remainder of the day. They will no longer be sent home immediately upon identification of LIVE LICE.

Staff will notify parents by phone and send the Lice Notification Letter home with student.

Lake Washington School District’s lice policy states that students that are identified with live lice or nits (white lice eggs) either at school or from the student’s parent have to be treated and have no live lice present for the student to return to school.

If the student returns to school and nits are still present, but there are not any live lice, the student may remain in school. However, if live lice are found on return to school after treatment, the student will need to immediately go home. The parent needs to work nightly on removing any remaining nits that may still be present.

The student is rechecked in 7 to 10 days to see that all nits have been removed.

Can Lice Eggs Reattach to the Hair if they Fall Off?

Lice eggs, also called nits, can not get back into the hair if they fall off. The only way to contract a case of head lice is for a louse to crawl into the hair. It is Highly Unlikely that Lice Eggs (Nits) will Fall off the Hair Nits are glued to the hair, therefore it is not typical for them to fall out. In fact, if you find a nit in the hair, you will see how challenging it is to remove it. You need to either use a comb that has tines that are close together or you need to squeeze your fingers around the nit and slide it down the hair strand.

Secondary Schools: the first day of classes, and the first day students return from extended breaks, such as fall holidays, winter holidays, and spring break.
