Wellington and Lake Worth School Head Lice Policies

Wellington and Lake Worth School Head Lice Policies
Updated on 
July 9, 2019

Schools in the Palm Beach County School District including those in Wellington and Lake Worth will generally follow the policy dictated by their board, which in this case is to stick to a “No Nit” policy when lice appear in the school.

PALM BEACH COUNTY

Response to Identified Infestations

The principal is responsible for ensuring that contact with the student's parent/guardian has been attempted and for excluding from school any student who is found to have lice or nits, as soon as is practically possible or at the end of the school day. All reasonable efforts will be made to prevent close contact of affected students with others until dismissal.

The principal will permit the re-admission of any students after they are determined to be free of lice or nits by the school nurse or assigned designee.

Persistent problems will be referred, by the school nurse or principal’s designee, to appropriate agencies for assistance.
