PLANO INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT LICE POLICY

PLANO INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT LICE POLICY
Updated on 
January 12, 2019

Plano schools have a lenient lice policy in accordance with recommendations from major health organizations. Children with lice and nits will be permitted to remain in school and will be sent home for treatment after school. Children will not be prevented from returning to school.

Plano ISD follows the Centers for Disease Control and the Texas Department of State Health Services recommendations, the position papers of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the National Association of School Nurses in the treatment and attendance guidelines for lice re-admittance to school. The scientific evidence supports that exclusion from school for nits alone is not indicated. In unusual circumstances, the Plano ISD Administration and the school principal reserve the right to modify these recommendations during unusual episodes. The best treatment is prevention. Throughout the school year, check your child's hair weekly and after overnight visits with other children. Educate your children to avoid spread of lice by head-to-head contact, sharing hats, combs, brushes, etc. Eggs (nits) not killed by treatments will continue to hatch within 7-10 days. All nits should be removed to prevent reinfestation and permit early recognition of any new infestation. Schools will take the following steps when it has been determined that lice are present: Once live lice have been identified, the parent will be contacted for treatment to begin. After treatment has begun and there are no live lice, the student should be checked by the school nurse prior to reentry to school.” Learn more at Plano Independent School Dist.

Please check with your child's school to confirm their policy as there may be some variation among districts. You can always call LiceDoctors at 214-382-9727 for help with your problem and to learn more about our Plano lice services!
