The Colony and Little Elm School Lice Policies

The Colony and Little Elm School Lice Policies
Updated on 
February 28, 2019

Schools in the The Colony and Little Elm area do not adhere to a strict “no-nit” policy; students are allowed to return to the classroom once they have undergone treatment.

Little Elm

“Head lice, although not an illness or a disease, is very common among children and is spread very easily through head-to-head contact during play, sports, or nap time, and when children share things like brushes, combs, hats, and headphones. If careful observation indicates that a student has head lice, the school nurse will contact the student’s parent to determine whether the student will need to be picked up from school and to discuss a plan for treatment with an FDA-approved medicated shampoo or cream rinse that may be purchased from any drug or grocery store. After the student has undergone one treatment, the parent should check in with the school nurse to discuss the treatment used. The nurse can also offer additional recommendations, including subsequent treatments and how best to get rid of lice and prevent their return. Notice will also be provided to parents of elementary school students in the affected classroom.” Source: Little Elm ISD Student Handbook

The Colony

“There are millions of cases of head lice each year in the United States, mostly among children ages 3 to 11. Head lice do not jump, fly, or hop. They are spread primarily through direct head-to-head contact. Your school nurse can help you with additional information on lice and treatment.” Source: Lewisville ISD Health Services
