arrow Previous bar Next arrow

School employees shall report all suspected cases of head lice to the school nurse or designee as soon as possible. The nurse or designee shall examine the student and any siblings of affected students or members of the same household. If nits or lice are found, the student shall be excluded and parents/ guardians informed about recommended treatment procedures, ways to check the hair, and sources of further information.

The principal shall send home the notification required by law for excluded students. (Education Code 48213)

When one or more students in any class have been identified as having nits or head lice, all students in the class shall be examined and information about head lice shall be sent home to all parents/guardians in the class.

(cf. 5125 - Student Records)

Excluded students may return to school when they bring a note from the parent/guardian indicating the treatment used and when reexamination by the nurse or designee shows that all pests and nits have been removed.
