Manassas School Lice Policy

Manassas School Lice Policy
Updated on 
March 5, 2019

Please note that students in this school district will not be sent home on account of head lice. Manassas schools follow the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Virginia Department of Health (VDH), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the National Association of School Nurses (NASN). Students found with live head lice may remain in school for the day and then be treated at home before returning to school the next day. It is expected at that point that live bugs will no longer be on the head but a few nits may remain. Nits are not contagious.

The reason for the shift in policy is that these organizations believe that many children were missing school unnecessarily. They often had been at school for several weeks before being diagnosed and there may only be nits in the hair. Source: Mayfield School Bobcat Bulletin
