Puyallup and Auburn School Head Lice Policies

Puyallup and Auburn School Head Lice Policies
Updated on 
August 14, 2019

In accordence with recommenations by the CDC and the National Association of School Nurses, schools in Auburn and Puyallup have discontinued “no nit” policies and allow students with nits to remain in school, although these students are expected to be treated.

Auburn Schools

Exclude from group setting?

The American Academy of Pediatrics no longer recommends routine exclusion of children from K-12 settings for head lice. Child care licensing regulations also no longer require the routine exclusion for head lice. However, child cares may choose whether to include head lice and/or nits in their facility’s exclusion guidelines and whether exclusion is to be immediate or at the end of the day. The exclusion policy must be written and available to parents. Head lice are not a health hazard and are not easily spread in school-age classrooms. However, parents and guardians must be informed that prompt, proper treatment is in the best interest of their child and his or her classmates.

  2. Students who appear to be infested with live head lice may be excluded from school.
  3. The parent/guardian will be provided with instruction for treatment.
  4. In addition to the day that students are sent home, students will receive one (1)excused absence to address treatment.
  5. The parent/guardian of child(ren) who come in contact with an infested child may, at the nurse’s discretion, be notified to examine their children for signs of lice or nits and, if found, treat before sending the child back to school.
