School lice policies in Norwalk and Darien can vary from school to school so always check with your child's school to determine their policy regarding head lice. 

Norwalk Public Schools

Norwalk Public Schools do not allow lice in school, and require children with lice to stay at home.

“Keep your child home if you suspect he/she has lice, and contact your child’s physician regarding appropriate treatment. Please inform the school nurse if your child has lice.”

Darien Public Schools

Schools in Darien have a lice policy in line with American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and National Association of School Nurses (NASN) recommendations, and allow students with lice to remain in school.

“In keeping with current standards and research, mass screenings for head lice are no longer conducted in our schools. Rather, our emphasis is on prevention through parental education, and home/school communication and collaboration.

Current public health standards and research-based recommendations indicate that routine screening by parents and management at home are the key factors to effectively control head lice.

It is recommended that parents screen their children once a week throughout the year in order to reduce the spread of this pest within the school, your family and the community.
