SAN MARCOS AREA SCHOOLS

Head Lice

SMCISD follows the Centers for Disease Control and the Texas Department of State Health Services recommendations, and 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 lice is not indicated. 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 re-infestation and permit early recognition of any new infestation.
