St. Clair Shores and Warren School Head Lice Policies

St. Clair Shores and Warren School Head Lice Policies
Updated on 
August 21, 2019

Most school districts set the district-wide policies for head lice and parents should always check with their child’s school for their particular policies. Schools in St. Clair Shores restrict students from attendance if they have any signs of lice, while Warren schools follow the recommendations of the Michigan Department of Health which recommends against “no nit” policies owing to their negative social and financial impacts.

SAINT CLAIR SHORES SCHOOLS

CONTROL OF CASUAL CONTACT COMMUNICABLE DISEASES AND PESTS

Because a school has a high concentration of people, it is necessary to take specific measures when the health or safety of the group is at risk. The school's professional staff has the authority to remove or isolate a student who has been ill or has been exposed to a communicable disease or highly- transient pest, such as lice.

MICHIGAN STATE LICE RECOMMENDATIONS

Policy Recommendation:

At this time, MDCH and MDE recommend a policy that focuses on the exclusion of active infestations only. Active infestations can be defined as the presence of live lice or nits found within one quarter inch of the scalp. Nits that are found beyond one quarter inch of the scalp have more than likely hatched, or are no longer viable.

  • Any student with live lice (or nits within one quarter inch of the scalp) may remain in school until the end of the school day (see recommended procedures, page 23). Immediate treatment at home is advised. The student will be readmitted to school after treatment and examination. If, upon examination, the school-designated personnel find no live lice on the child, the child may reenter the school.
  • Any student with nits (farther than one quarter inch from scalp) should be allowed in school.
  • Parents should remove nits daily and treat if live lice are observed.

The Slumber Party that Became a Head Lice Picking Party

It was rather chaotic at Rebecca and Dan's Framingham home on Saturday night as there were five 7-year-olds sleeping over. Their daughter Anna was celebrating her birthday with a slumber party. The girls were squealing with delight as they played games and ate birthday cake. Suddenly one of the squeals sounded different. Rebecca ran in to the room and the girls were pointing to a bug on one of the girls shoulders. Rebecca took one look at the bug and knew she was looking at a head louse. Rebecca was no novice when it came to head lice.
