Tempe School Lice Policy

Tempe School Lice Policy
Updated on 
April 17, 2019

Tempe schools view lice as a nuisance so they do not exclude children for the presence of nits in the hair. Once an infested child has begun treatment and the live bugs are gone, he or she may return to the classroom.

HEAD LICE/PEDICULOSIS

While head lice are not considered an infectious disease, they are more commonly found in children due to their close contact with each other. Parents should discourage their children from sharing personal items such as hats, scarves, head bands, helmets, brushes, combs, or pillows to decrease the likelihood of spread from one person to another. Lice are not a sign of poor hygiene and they do not spread disease. If someone in your child’s class develops head lice, there is no reason to assume your child will “catch” head lice. Head lice are confirmed by the identification of a live louse on the head. Parents are encouraged to check their child’s hair weekly and consult your school health office staff as a resource. Students identified with live lice will be sent home from school and should remain at home until properly treated and lice-free.

If your child contracts a case of head lice, it‘s not a crisis, but it does need to be remedied. Lice will not wear themselves out or disappear. Call LiceDoctors today at 602-753-0289 for a discreet, fast, and effective solution to your lice problem.
