Santa Clara School Head Lice Policy

Santa Clara School Head Lice Policy
Updated on 
July 10, 2019

Schools in the Santa Clara region worry about lice only when there are live adult bugs crawling on the scalp. Children are not sent home at the first sign of lice; they are allowed to finish out the day and instructions will be sent home with them then.

Santa Cara

The Governing Board recognizes that head lice infestations among students require treatment. The Superintendent or designee shall encourage early detection and treatment in a manner that minimizes disruption of the education program and reduces student absences resulting from infestation.

The Superintendent or designee may distribute information to parents/guardians of preschool and elementary students regarding routine screening, symptoms, accurate diagnosis, and proper treatment of head lice infestations. The Superintendent or designee also may provide related information to school staff.

School employees shall report all suspected cases of head lice to the school nurse or designee as soon as possible.

If a student is found with active, adult head lice, the student shall be allowed to stay in school until the end of the school day. The parent/guardian of any such student shall be given information about treatment of head lice and encouraged to begin treatment of the student immediately and to check all members of the family. The parent/guardian also shall be informed that the student shall be checked upon return to school the next day and allowed to remain in school if no active head lice are detected.

Upon the student's return to school, the school nurse or designee shall check the student for active head lice. If it is determined that the student remains infected with head lice, the school nurse or designee shall contact the student's parent/guardian to discuss treatment. As needed, he/she may provide additional resources and/or referral to the local health department, health care providers, or other agencies.
