Rowlett and Rockwall School Head Lice Policies

Rowlett and Rockwall School Head Lice Policies
Updated on 
February 22, 2020

Schools in Rowlett and Rockwall no longer hold to strict “no nit” policies. Instead they are in alignment with recommendations from the CDC and National Association of School Nurses as they have adopted “no live lice” policies.

ROWLETT AREA SCHOOLS

Head Lice

“Head lice, although not an illness or a disease, is very common among children and is spread through head-to-head contact during play, sports, or nap time and when children share things like brushes, combs, hats and headphones. If careful observation indicates head lice, the school nurse will contact the student’s parent to determine whether the student will need to be picked up from school and to discuss a plan for treatment with an FDA-approved medicated shampoo or cream rinse that may be purchased from any drug or grocery store. After the student has undergone one treatment, the parent should check in with the school nurse to discuss the treatment used. The school nurse can also offer recommendations, including subsequent treatments and how best to get rid of lice and prevent their return.

Notice will also be provided to parents of elementary school students in the affected classroom.

More information on head lice can be obtained from the district website at http://www.garlandisd.net/content/health-information or from the DSHS website at Managing Head Lice.

ROCKWALL AREA SCHOOLS

Exclusion and Readmission

“Students found to be symptomatic of lice infestation will be assessed by the school nurse/clinic personnel. For students found to have evidence of live lice infestation:

  • Exclude students at the end of the school day. Students must be free of live lice before readmission.
  • School nurse/clinic personnel will check students excluded for live lice upon return to school to determine effective treatment.
  • Instructions for the treatment of head lice are available from the school nurse.”
