Shawnee Mission School District head lice procedures

The school nurse will not conduct regular head lice checks. Per the advice of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, Center for Disease Control, and American Academy of Pediatrics, children with lice and nits may remain in school. At the end of the school day, it is expected that these students will receive a lice killing treatment at home.

LAWRENCE AREA SCHOOLS

This district acknowledges that head lice do not carry disease and should be treated as a nuisance rather than as an illness. The website states that because lice transmission takes place only with live lice, not with nits, children may remain in school. Lawrence schools expect parents to check their children at home on a weekly basis. If one family member is found to have lice, then everyone in the family should be checked.
