Waukegan and Lake Forest School Head Lice Policies

Waukegan and Lake Forest School Head Lice Policies
Updated on 
April 24, 2019

Every school district sets its own head lice policy, so there can be much variability from one school to the next, here is the Policy for Lake Forest schools:

Lake Forest Schools

This district has dropped its “no nit” policy but children with live bugs will be sent home for treatment.

“Students diagnosed with head lice will be sent home from school. They may return to school, provided appropriate treatment has been initiated. Nits may persist after initial treatment, but successful treatment should kill crawling live lice.  Student shall see School Nurse when returning to school for a re-check.

Both the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) advocate that a healthy child should not be restricted from attending school because of head lice or nits (eggs) and that "no-nit" policies should be discontinued.”
