Head Lice Policy

FYI – Head Lice Information for Parents

 

Under California Education Code 48211 and Alameda Unified School District Board Policy 5141.33*, students shall be excluded from school if lice or nits are found in the hair.

 

Excluded students may return to school when they bring a note from the parent/guardian stating the treatment used, and when re-examined by the Health Office Assistant, or designee, shows that all lice and nits have been removed.  If nits or lice are still present, the student will be sent home and not re-admitted until the hair is free of lice and nits.  Most students return the following day.  Students absent for more than three (3) consecutive days due to the presence of lice or nits will be considered truant.
