Marana and Oro Valley Head lice Policies

Marana and Oro Valley Head lice Policies
Updated on 
August 14, 2019

Both of these districts have no nit lice policies but Marana’s school lice policy is bit more lenient than Oro Valley’s.

MARANA- NO NIT LICE POLICY

While the Marana schools website states that “Children with head lice will be excluded from school until the hair has been treated and all the eggs (nits) have been removed”, under the district Health Services page, it states that “it is recommended that children not return to school until lice treatment has been initiated”. This suggests that the school will allow children to return to school with nits if the student has had lice treatment.

ORO VALLEY- NO NIT LICE POLICY

Oro Valley school district policy is as follows: “Children with head lice will be excluded from school until the hair has been treated and all eggs (nits) have been removed”. Oro Valley district does not allow students with head lice or nits to remain or return to school until they are clear.

Head Lice Without Symptoms

Some people with head lice itch; others do not! People often ask us if they can have head lice even though they have no symptoms. Truthfully, most people with head lice feel itchy. But not everyone has symptoms. In fact, one person may have a scalp filled with lice feeding off of it, while another person may have only one bug. Strangely, the person who has several lice, may not feel itchy at all, while the person with one louse may feel tremendously itchy. The reason for that is that itchiness is caused by a reaction to the saliva injected into your scalp by the bug.
