Roswell and Alpharetta School Head Lice Policies

Roswell and Alpharetta School Head Lice Policies
Updated on 
July 11, 2019

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.

LiceDoctors advises families to be vigilant about head lice at all times especially during summer and fall which are peak seasons for head lice infestations. Head lice are primarily transferred through head-to-head contact, therefore, children coming into close contact with each other facilitates transmission. The bad news is that chemical treatments are ineffective, as lice have developed a resistance. The good news is there are all-natural methods which are 100% effective in treating lice infestations.
