Scottsdale School Lice Policy

Scottsdale School Lice Policy
Updated on 
April 17, 2019

Schools in the Scottsdale Unified School District do not restrict a child‘s presence in the classroom based on the presence of lice.

Scottsdale Head Lice Guidelines

The Scottsdale Unified School District (SUSD) follows the evidenced based guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the National Association of School Nurses (NASN), and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) in regards to pediculosis/head lice management. It is the position of the CDC, NASN, AAP, and SUSD that the management of pediculosis should NOT disrupt the educational process and recommends that a healthy child should not be restricted from attending school because of lice or nits/eggs. No disease is associated with head lice and in-school transmission is considered to be rare. In cases involving head lice, as in all school health issues, it is vital that the school nurse prevents stigmatizing and maintains the student’s privacy as well as the families right to confidentiality. To further minimize student stigmatization, school staff and administrators are encouraged, as much as possible, to wait until the final part of the school day to perform lice checks, not send home letters once lice has been identified in a classroom, or perform classroom checks. Only parents/guardians of students with active lice will be notified.
