Roswell and Alpharetta School Head Lice Policies

Roswell and Alpharetta are both within the Fulton County School District and still adhere to “no nit” head lice policies.

FULTON COUNTY SCHOOLS

If you suspect your child has head lice, please contact or see a health provider and notify the school’s health clinic. It is important to continuously examine your child’s hair every day for at least two weeks because nits can live up to two weeks. Head lice can easily be confused with other health conditions and a formal diagnosis is preferred before treatment is administered. If the school suspects your child has head lice, you will be notified and will be asked to seek treatment for your student before he/she can return to school.

Please know the schools will also implement measures to minimize and prevent outbreaks. However, appropriate strategies will be implemented consistent with the best way to eradicate the problem.

We hope this information is helpful in keeping your child free of this problem. Additional resources are available at: www.cdc.gov/lice/head/ or www.headlice.org.
