Sterling Heights School Head Lice Policy

Sterling Heights School Head Lice Policy
Updated on 
August 8, 2019

 

Schools in Sterling Heights are in the Utica Community Schools District and as such continue to exclude children from school “until treatment is complete”. We, therefore, recommend that you check with your child’s school to ascertain whether they exclude children who present with live lice and nits or if they also restrict attendance when only nits are present.

Sterling Heights

 Head Lice – a child with head lice must remain at home until treatment is complete and school officials confirm he or she is free of lice. Check your child’s head before school begins in the fall and routinely during the school year or if he or she complains of an itchy scalp. Look around your child’s ears and back of the neck for nits, which are tiny, white, oval-shaped lice eggs that are attached to the hair near the scalp. Nits may look like dandruff or scalp flakes, but nits do not move and are difficult to dislodge. Notify the school office immediately if your child has head lice. Begin treatment immediately by contacting your doctor or purchasing over-the-counter medication from the drug store. To prevent spreading head lice, wash all infested garments, hair accessories, bedding and other surfaces with hot water and disinfectant. You must sign your child in at the office when he or she is returning to school after treatment for head lice.
