Marietta and Smyrna School Head Lice Policies

Marietta and Smyrna School Head Lice Policies
Updated on 
August 26, 2019

Marietta and Smyrna schools are within the Cobb County school district and do not adhere to a strict “no nit” policy. Students with live lice are sent home immediately, but can return to school as soon as treatment has begun and no more live lice are present.

  • Students with live lice should be sent home immediately with the NASN –Facing Head Lice Education letter and recommendations for treatment. If additional cases of live lice (greater than 10%) are found, an additional letter noting reported cases, may be sent home.
  • Once live lice has been identified, the school nurse should check his/her siblings and the infested students sent home. If siblings attend another school, that school nurse will be notified to check the siblings.
  • Proof of treatment (store receipt/box top from medication) may be required on return to school. The student will be re-examined for crawling forms and evidence of a recent shampoo by the school nurse. Each student will be rechecked for the presence of head lice after 10 days. Parents must begin the process of removing all the egg cases or nits from their child’s hair. The continued presence of egg cases or nits in a student’s hair after treatment is not a sufficient ground for denying him/her readmission to school unless the numbers of nits found are not consistently decreasing over a period of 7 days. However, remaining nits may hatch even after treatment. Parents should be encouraged to continue daily nit removal and alternative methods should be offered. Therefore, all infested persons should be retreated in 7-10 days to deactivate any remaining lice that have hatched or did not die after the first treatment.
