West Palm Beach School Head Lice Policy

West Palm Beach School Head Lice Policy
Updated on 
July 10, 2019

Schools in West Palm Beach are part of the Palm Beach County School District, and as such follow the district-wide “no nit” restrictions. This means children are not allowed to return to the classroom until the school nurse verifies that all live lice AND eggs have been removed.

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.

Everett School Lice Policy

In 2010, the Everett School District revised its lice policy; no longer are students excluded from school because of head lice. “EVERETT, Wash. — Everett schools are allowing children with head lice to remain in class while they are being treated. The district says the change in policy is based on thinking that missing class is worse than the risk of spreading the itchy parasites.” Source: The Daily Caller It is important to note that head lice will not go away by themselves. They require treatment which involves physically removing the nits from the hair and killing the lice.
